    Sorry man your question doesn't even make sense or someone would answer it for you...Vanilla is a forum...which is a "type" of website. And yes, you need your own hosting to be able to run a Vanilla web site.

    Check out the Server Requirements. You must have a web server that satisfies these requirements.

    @jn244, if all you have is the name (as mentioned here: Please #3), you will need to buy hosting behind it. There's dozens of options and ways to do this. If you're eager to do this yourself, I suggest you read up on a few things and experiment with uploading basic HTML pages to your new website.

    I don't think you should be attempting to install a self-hosted forum...either that or you should learn basic web development skills first.
