phpBB is a free forum software that you can use.
From what I know, you can install phpBB on your own hosting server, much like you would install self-hosted wordpress. There are hosting services that allow you to install it automatically through the control panel and there are hosting services with which you have to download phpBB from http://www.phpbb.com/downloads and then upload it via FTP.
If you want your forum to be a part of your website, then you would install phpBB in a subfolder on your hosting server.

Perhaps you can try www.forumotion.com. It says that you can create a forum or message board which is 100% customizable. Their updates are also regular, free and automatic.
