We use Lunar Pages (http://www.lunarpages.com) for hosting with a SMF 1.1.4 front end. Its nothing fancy, but, it provides a nice clean interface and enough customization so we can add things like a navigation pane of important links like the guild's WWS page. Check it out: http://whj-guild.org Like I said, nothing fancy, but, I feel its clean and gets the job done with not a lot of work involved by the officers to maintain.

Tankadin! One of my favorite sites as a prot. tankadin :)I'm hosting my own as well for a sub-guild (RP-PvP Team) that just starting out. After having seen the prefab sites, I never found one that did everything I wanted with the flexibility I was after. We're an RP guild made for Battlegrounds when our mains have us a bit burned out questing/raiding/etc. A Warhammer 40K theme set in WoW.http://www.orderofthebloodyrose.comAs to software *inhale* The CMS is ModxCMS w/ SMF for the forum integration (its there, just no content yet.). The framework is GoogleLab's "BluePrint" css. It makes designing SO Much easier. Also using liberal amounts of good old PHP/GD Library for fancy headers and such.As to hosting, I can't express how much I love my hosting provider - just199.com - Its literally $1.99/mo. for a 1GB of space, plenty of emails (Real Email, as in Pop & iMap as well as Webmail), MySQL allowances, and, for the IT inclined, offers excellent security. Also, the owners are WoW players, so they understand what's involved in trying to bring a guild site online with minimal hassles.Many sites use PHPBB, and I was one but after multiple exploits, I've switched to SMF.

Tankadin is an favorite of our Paladin tank! And Paladin tanks are a favorite of mine. They make Hyjal trash so much enjoyable. I'll have to check out Joomla.
