Friendly web communities running our ASP.NET forum software:

For years, Virgin Atlantic & US Coast Guard have relied on our community software
to help their pilots and guards stay in touch, both on and off duty -

My primary focus was providing a tool that Coast Guard field units throughout the United States could effectively use to share knowledge and experience amongst themselves as well as command entities on a timely basis.

The ASPPlayground.NET Forum software meets these communication requirements, including the ability to share documents and graphics, providing an intuitive and user friendly interface for a satisfying user experience.

#1: The Unique ASP Playground Advantage:

Why APG vNext (ASP Playground version 5) ?

We help you create engagement by making your community more 'Attractive'

Creating an online community today involves much more than setting up a forum and waiting for people to come:

Traditional forum software doesn't offer much help. The Internet has evolved significantly while most forum solutions remain too passive with a plain forum index homepage. People have shorter attention span today and if they don't see relevant stuff upfront, they leave.

More users are using mobile devices to access the web today than ever. If you don't have a dedicated mobile friendly interface, user experience may suffer and people are less likely to stick around.

Forum spam is a huge problem, and people will become frustrated and leave if they don't see spam removed in time. Traditional methods like using captcha or enlisting moderators are either ineffective or too slow, because we're now dealing with human spammers that are trained to circumvent these measures.

Here's how APG vNext solves the problems for you ...

The software comes with detailed permission settings that give you complete access control, and it also has tools like content scroller and an optional blog-inspired homepage that help you promote your community outside the usual discussion format.

We also offer official jQuery Mobile app support, and an interactive HTML 5 based UI (drag'n drop upload, AJAX interactions, etc.) that meet users' new expectations for the social and mobile web.

Akismet, an automated web spam filter is integrated in the software. It frees you up from dealing with spam manually which is very time-consuming. When you have members who place their trust in your community, it's vital that it's safe and free from malicious ads or phishing attacks. Nothing beats the feeling of knowing you're being protected by the most powerful spam filter in the world.

- Last but not least: Poor performance leads to low user experience and search engine rankings -

APG vNext is battle tested with HUGE communities online. You don't have to shut down features as your community grows. We also make the system easy to scale out (no session object used). One of our clients deploy the software to 9 web servers for their enormous audience.

Our community software helps clients in tech industries
provide responsive customer service

Cakewalk, a hardware products creator for modern audio production, supports more than 70,000 customers with peer-to-peer support using our ASP.NET forum software. With a vibrant community in place, it makes customer support possible without incurring huge overhead.

GFI, an award winning software solutions provider for small to mid-sized businesses, created an online support community for their customers to ask questions about their product offerings as well as distribute news for upcoming product releases.

More than 25,000 customers signed up over the last 8 years and this community plays an important role in their support system till this day.


Of course, it takes MORE than a well built software to create great communities online (e.g. passion, dedication and a good strategy). We're very proud that ASP Playground has played a part in their success and contributed to their community growth over the years :)

EVGA has been using ASP Playground for our community forum for 9+ years... The software runs fantastic; it’s fast even under load. Our main community can post about 200 times per hour, and over 16k concurrent users at our peak, it keeps up without an issue.
