For a free domain name:
No. Because it depends on the company
Unless: You find a company that allows an id on the left side. And then only if the name "forum" hasn't already been taken for the particular host name.

For your own domain name that you register:
Yes! With your own registered name (cost maybe $10 a year?), you can put anything on the left side, as far as I know.E.g. Yahoo has:,, , etc.
