My Own Forum

Recommended Posts

I am new to this and I am a dumb ass ignorant stupid redneck that needs help. I am 76 years old so please bear with me as I may not ask the right questions. I owned a Survival Forum on Yahoogroups. Yahoogroups was bought by Verizon Telephone and we were notified that our Forums would disappear. Most everyone switched to igroups. Like Yahoogroups it started as FREE, but they saw the opportunity to become millionaires and started charging hundreds of dollars for your Forum and they are having nothing but trouble setting things up because all of a sudden there is 100,000 Forums transfering over.

So I want to host my own Forum. If I have to pay money they I want to own it. I have purchased a domain name. I want to know if there is any software that I can install and design my own thing like I did on Yahoogroups? I am even willing to set up my own server. When I Google all this my head explodes. Nothing makes sense and nothing fits what I want to do. Do I have to use Linux? Can't I use Windows 10 Pro 64? Is there a software I can download to do this? Or a  disk I can install? Let's start here. Help.
