    If You Could Sell The Hosting It's The Best Choice! And If You Want To Get Way More Traffic To Your Website Then Give Unlimited Hosting For Free And No Ads.. And If You Want to Build A Community Then Offer The Hosting For Posting !
    You Can Choose The Best One Which Fit You :)

    I Meant It Depends On Your Choice, What Do You Need! A Community ? Money ? Traffic ? All Of Them Are Above With The Explanation

    of course i would pick money, but i dont think its easy to get buyers

    i think the community would be the easiest and best offer, saves me paying for posters

    I would give free limited (but good) hosting for a set number of people, with of of the terms of sale being they have 3 text links on their site aiming to your sites or links you have sold. This way you are building links to promote you sites and getting the word out, once your getting good traffic or enough traffic slowly introduce some pricing scheme's

    I only know of 2 forums that have made it sucsessful with "Hosting for Posting"
    As far as I know you get alot of crap posts and sites you have to delete!

    Maybe offer a discount based on the number of posts and/or time a member.

    that's what admin of my site done.

    And not only that, he will share premium WP themes for free, to get more backlinks to his site.

    Every Forum Has The Spam Posts Issue, It Doesn't Matter If It's Hosting For Posts Or Paying For Posts, Free Forums Either !
    There Is Always Some Efforts Must Be Made By The Webmaster If He Needs To Build A Great Community

    If members are posting purley to hit a target to keep the free hosting then the quality will be poor in most cases.
    Not everyone can create posts or threads of good quality all the time,with a small number of exceptions.
    I am lucky enough to have some real quality members at my forum whos posts are alawys good quality, but start telling them they have to post 100 per month without fail and the quality would fall,.........fact.
