My fees to install Flarum

The base price displayed above is for installing Flarum on shared hosting. Officially, Flarum does not support shared hosting yet. But I’ll be able to install Flarum on some shared hosting providers. Anyways you should contact me before placing an order for shared hosting to see if your hosting provider supports Flarum.

You should select an appropriate option under Hosting Platform if you’re using anything other than shared hosting. And if you’re debating about picking a hosting solution for your Flarum forum, definitely use VPS hosting. Here are my recommended VPS Providers.

What will you get?

Free SSL and Security for Flarum

I build web servers keeping speed and security in mind. That’s why I’m only using Ubuntu 16.04 as operating system and Nginx as WebServer. Nginx is 9x faster than Apache2. You’ll get a perfect server setup with Flarum installed and ready to go.

My Virtualmin and Nginx configuration is the foundation to a super-fast Flarum installation. I guarantee you will beat any Flarum instance hosted on an Apache web-server in terms of speed with this configuration. I will be building your server with,

  • Virtualmin v6.03 GPL Hosting Control Panel
  • Webmin v1.892 System Administration Interface
  • Nginx v1.16 as webserver
  • PHP v7.3
  • MariaDB v10.0.36
  • Fail2Ban v0.9.3
  • Uncomplicated Firewall v0.35
  • Composer v1.6.5

Virtualmin has similar functionality as cPanel. It’s feature rich and fully capable of managing a Flarum hosted server. Most importantly it’s free. And it gives you options to host multiple websites and domains on your server along with Elgg.

SSL (https) Configuration for Flarum

SSL (https) will be enabled for your Flarum for FREE!, for LIFE! that’s right FREE for LIFE! This is only available for VPS, AWS EC2 and Google Cloud customers, and isn’t available for Shared Hosting customers.

I’ll install Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate for your Flarum domain and setup auto-renew so you won’t have to worry about it ever.

Basic VPS Security for Flarum

Your Flarum hosted VPS or EC2 instance will be secure against hacking and unauthorized login attempts. I’ll configure UFW and Fail2Ban to secure your VPS.

Feel free to ask questions about this service on support forum.

Flarum is a self-hosted forum software. It needs hosting space. Which means you need to give me a domain name and hosting account to install it. Following are the information you need to provide me after ordering this service.

For Shared Hosting –

I don’t recommend using shared hosting for Flarum. It is not officially supported and can become quite unreliable. I suggest reading Self-managed VPS providers and getting a VPS for $10 per month.

If you’re planning to install Flarum on your shared hosting account, I might be able to do it. But please check in with me before ordering. If I agree to install Flarum on your shared hosting account, I’ll need following information from you.

For VPS –

If you decide to go with VPS you need to select VPS (DigitalOcean, Linode, etc) under Hosting Platform. In this case I’ll need access to your VPS.

Preferred way of access to your AWS account is through AWS IAM.
