Depends on the forum software and what you're wanting to do with it.
If you need some extra control, extra modules installed on the server level etc, then a VPS is a good starting point.
if you're doing a general vBulletin, phpBB or other out-of-the-box forum software, then often a shared account is a good starting point.
Just keep an eye on server resources and speed. The moment you see a site dragging, it's time to upgrade hosting or potentially move to an alternate host that can support the software and traffic volume.
