FTP access is usually provided by the host to the client. You get a password and then you can access the server via FTP.

Hosts that provide free forums, usually do not give FTP access as it is only needed when people need to install scripts and such hosts will not allow users to install scripts or modify the forum script which can interfere with their advertising or set up.

They provide a free service but there are also limitations.

Good luck

How did you get your site?
How did you install IPB V1.3?
Was is pre-installed by the server or you installed yourself?
Does your server give you HTTP Admin Panel that you can use to upload files?

You will not have HTTP upload, FTP access or any such privileges with the above set up.
You will not be able to install any mods.

Good luck

- Host with pre-installed forums will not allow you to change the forum script (ie add mods)

Therefore you must install your own forum.
You can go for a free host or paid host.
You can go for a free forum script or a commercial one.

Free hosts often have PHP in Safe mode which interferes with scripts.
They usually come without any database which means you can only choose a forum script that does not use a database.
Some also restrict access to PHP mail.

Paid hosts offer everything for a price.

Good luck

You'll need to purchase hosting, buy your own copy of IPB and move your site if you want to add mods.

You can go to http://www.vbulletin.com/ and check the prices.

But that is the script only. You would still need hosting (somewhere to put the script).
You may also need a domain (your own URL).

The major issue is the host. You can check around and find a free/cheap host. After that look for a forum script. vBulletin is the most popular commercial script but there are many others. There are also many free scripts around.



Good luck
