vBulletin is just a piece of software (script) that runs on a webserver, using PHP as parser and a MySQL database as storage.

If you want a quick and easy forum, some website hosts have a built in forum for your home page.

Just don't expect it to be that good

Oh, but setting up a forum with php and mysql isn't so hard. You just download the package, edit a config file with some server information, upload it all, go to the admin page, configurate it and you're done.
