The easiest way is to use . A lot of sites use it. It's free if you don't mind a lot of popups and huge banner ads at the top of your page. Or you can pay for it. Check out the forums on for an example of EZboard in action. Note that they've hidden it behind a frame.

Otherwise, it depends on what scripting languages your host allows.

If you want a message board that looks like the CityDesk forum, you can use John Conners's script:

You need PHP and MYSQL on your web server.

I think the answer is "there are a lot of options if you're not afraid of installing & configuring a message board, including a database."
