Yes, it surprised the heck out of me...I am using Invision power board's service where they offer free use of their software included in the hosting service. It makes since for the moment to do it that way. I think their reasoning must be that forums tend to resource intensive and they don't want to have to deal with people bulk emailing. If the website takes off I will move it to a VPS or dedicated with a different company.
I did decide to go with Google, and I am quite pleased with it so far.
