A forum is actually a program that runs on the server.
There are several options:
1) maybe your host Control Panel includes a "pre-installed" forum. There are some controls and a manual - sometimes it is not too much difficult to have it up and running. You may also kindly ask your host.
2) you can install (or ask your host to install) a forum software. There are several ones. One popular one is YaBB that we are using on this forum, www.xnull.com
3) you may just link to an external site that does host a "free forum". There are several ones out there - maybe they will show advertisings so they could be annoying. I think we list some at
