    How long have Best Boards been around?
    Since December 2001.

    How much bandwidth are Free Trial BbBoards allowed in the 30 day trial period?
    All Free Trial BbBoards are allowed 300 MB in bandwidth for the 30 day trial period. If a BbBoard goes over that, it is inaccessable until someone donates credit to upgrade the board.


    The admins can upgrade to the Fixed level to get the benefit of all of our features and have unlimited bandwith and reduced advertising or upgrade to the Variable level which has no advertising at all, but bandwith over the minimum $2.50 is paid at a rate of $6.00 per gig.

    Do you have Domain Name Support if I want to use my existing Domain Name for my board?
    Yes you can associate a domain name (or subdomain) with your board. This will allow total integration (not just a frame or redirect), and will make it look like you're the one hosting the board.


    For example, you could have www.yourdomain.com bring up your board with us. Or, if you have the ability to edit DNS records for your domain, you could have something like forum.yourdomain.com .


    Please note that as we would be hosting DNS for your domain, there is a small $2/month fee for this service.

    What payment methods do you accept for the paid versions?
    We accept payment via credit/debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Eurocard, and Visa-Debit, MasterCard-Debit, and Novus cards - all processed by Clickbank's secure, encrypted server), Earthport (International, no credit card needed), NoChex (UK specific), cheque/money order, and PayPal.

    I want to have Adult (X-Rated) Content on my boards, is that against your TOU?
    Yes, we lock any BbBoard found to have Adult content or that host links to Warez sites/ftps. We do not allow anything X-rated because minors, 13 and over use our boards and we expect our BbBoard owners to understand that if it is not fit to show your mother or a teenager then it is not fit to have on your BbBoard.

    Will people who want to post on my board have to pay?
    No - user signup is 100% free - they just have to fill out the short registration form.

    If I want to stay and upgrade to a paid plan, do I have to pay for it beforehand?
    No. If you want to go with one of the paid plans, then you can do it either way:



    Your choice. Of course, you can just sign up for a FREE board to try things out. Then decide if you want to keep it and upgrade to one of paid plans as long as it is within 30 days of the trial period ending.

    How would bandwidth be calculated for my board?
    Bandwidth is the amount of data which is transferred from the server to the users. Every page load, the page is sent to the user. So let's say a page is 5KB - that 5KB is the amount of bandwidth that's used up by that page load. Images hosted in the file hosting also take up bandwidth every time they're loaded. So the more their viewed, the more bandwidth is used.

    Can I convert my existing ezboard to Best Boards?
    Yes.

    If you would like your ezboard converted, please email support@bbboy.net with the following information:

    • Your ezboard's URL
    • Your BbBoard's URL
    • A date on which would be best to transfer. Please note that we prefer to transfer in the early morning, as that's when the servers are at the lowest load. We cannot perform this service on a Sunday.
    When the conversion is due to take place, you must:
    • Remove MBA from your ezboard, if it's enabled.
    • Open up any private forums (on your ezboard) that you wish to be transferred.
    • Make sure that all forums are in the "ezboard Classic" skin/theme.


    This procedure will not delete threads from your ezboard. Please note that we can only retrieve the first page of any ezboard thread (the first 20 posts), so longer threads may be cut off. Polls will be transferred as regular threads.

    There is a $10 one-time charge for this service. This will be deducted from your board's credit at the time of the transfer.

    Will people have to register to post on my board?
    Not if you don't want them too. There are options in your administration center to restrict access, starting new threads, and replying, to everyone, none-guests, moderators and administrators, and selected people, so you can choose who will be able to view/post at your board.

    What features does BbBoard have?
    Please see our features list. We're sure you'll be impressed.

    What will the URL to my board look like?
    It will be in the form http://bb.bbboy.net/yourboardname - no long URLs.

    How much does it cost to create a board?
    We have a 30 day FREE trial period and once that expires, you have the option to upgrade to one of our paid plans within 30 days of the trial expiration or the board will be removed from the network. Upgrading is easy and for as little as $2.50 per month you can get file hosting, posting by email along with other features the free trial boards do not have. We have 2 paid plans - a fixed rate of $2.50 per month, with up to 2 popup adverts every 12 hours, or a plan according to bandwidth usage, with no ads whatsoever. See the more info page for more information.

    Do you have a spellchecker on BbBoard?
    No. But if you use Internet Explorer you can download this one http://www.iespell.com/ that will work very well on BbBoard.

    What's the difference between the fixed plan and the variable plan?
    For our 30 day free trial boards:

    • It is 100% FREE
    • Popups and ad banners will be displayed on your board.
    • Includes all features except for File Hosting, Posting by Email and Full Log. Once the 30 day trial period ends and you decide you want to upgrade you can get these features for only $2.50 (2 American dollars and 50 cents) per month - see below.
    The fixed plan:

    • A flat fee of $2.50 per month
    • Up to 2 popups per IP# per 12 hours
    • No banner ads
    • All features


    The variable plan:

    • Pricing according to bandwidth usage - $6/GB, minimum $2.50/month. Hint - most boards, even large ones, don't usually use more than a GB of bandwidth per month. In fact, the cost for the variable plan may often be the same as the fixed plan - $2.50/month.
    • No popups
    • No banner ads
    • All features
