Web hosting is a free, paid, or discounted service. All your website files are stored securley in the cloud with an encryption that allows your site to be viewed by the internet users! Here is a video to explain more and the different types which are available.

Someone said, at least a VPS is needed. Any confirmation on that?

It depends what you expect and what your budget is I guess. I'm not sure how expensive a VPS is but shared hosting is good enough and budget-friendly most of the time. I don't think you need a VPS straight away but you can move over to a VPS once your forum is established and getting more members and posts every day
