Easy to Use

The simple, easy-to-use interface requires no technical knowledge. Your users can start posting immediately!

Uptime and Reliability

ActiveBoard combines outstanding forum software with fault tolerant clustered hosting so we can deliver high availability and security. Unlike many other services no single server or device failure will affect your ActiveBoard. Should any one server stop functioning, a process called failover automatically shifts its workload to another server to provide continuous service. In fact we even have servers in multiple cities to ensure unsurpassed reliability.

Multi-language Support

Activeboard supports a variety of languages in addition to English, including:
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese
  • Dutch
  • French
  • German
  • and 14 more!
