5 reasons to leave forumotion.com

Why should i move from forumotion.com? There are many reasons to this! I’m only going to list a few.

1.) Database problems.

You will never get your database from forumotion.No matter how hard you try they just wont give it too you.

Why do you need your database?

Well if you’re not happy with forumotion or want a cheaper host, you won’t be able to switch since forumotion owns your database.

2.)Ban problems.

Forumotion has a third party program implemented called “online guardian” online guardian has the right to ban any website that breaks forumotions rules.

The possible deletion reasons are as following :

* Violent or repulsive content
* Hateful or abusive content
* Defamatory content and / or affecting the integrity of a person
* Sexual and/or pornographic content
* Harmful and dangerous acts
* Copyright infringment
* Spam
* Phishing and/ or malware website
* Credit card fraud
* Hacking

Now this sounds good but what this means is if a random member on your website goes and posts porn on your website. and you somehow miss it, they’ll send you a warning and if you don’t remove it in time you’ll get ban. The stupid part is they don’t tell you  where and how your breaking the rules, and they don’t just ban the member for you they ban your forum. This can lead to many problems.

3.) Looking bad.

Many forumotion website are stuck at 500+ members and 30 thousand posts.Wonder why? This is because people simply don’t want to join a website by forumotion, no matter how much traffic they get.

4.) Money drain.

Forumotion expects you to buy a domain from them which is overly priced. They pretty much overpriced everything. They expect you to pay 20$ a year to remove their advertisements when you can remove advertisements for free with http://www.x10hosting.com

5.) Being bad.

Forumotion is running on the worst forum software out their.

These include phpbb phpbb3 and more.Users simply don’t want phpbb they lack many features and have the most vulnerabilities.Forumotion does add on to it heavily but they’re still just not user friendly.

It’s not even about that, when people know your running on forumotion.com they look down on you.They know your just trying to do it the “easy” way.

Nothing nice in life is easy or free.

What are you waiting for? This should be enough to make the switch. We suggest you  choose mybb.
