My phpbb forum died

I created a forum, here is the link :

I'm not very technical so I needed a lot of help to set it up, which is why I went to the phpbb forums to ask for assistance, and they helped out a lot.

I started a few threads to get it going, and it was pretty much ready to go, but recently I looked at it and it was gone.

The forum was going to be part of another site which I set up (it still works) :

I'm not sure why my forum disappeared, but I have a feeling that it might be due to inactivity. I think the host that I was with ( ) is a bit funny when it comes to inactive sites. But I can't be sure.

Any ideas on how to sort this out?

What's 10mx? Is it a free hosting site? Maybe they deleted the board, or maybe something messed up the configuration to tell the site where the folder is located.

Yes it's a free hosting site. I do believe, based on something that I heard, that they stop hosting if there's inactivity for a certain amount of time. I'm hoping that my forum still exists (I don't see why it shouldn't, as it's made by phpbb), but it's currently in limbo.

Maybe I could find another hosting site. Would that work?
