A Discourse alternative for hosting your community AND your products.

Much more than just discussion forums, Podia is an all-in-one platform for hosting your community (and more) with unlimited products, personal support, and more features to help you sell.

Sell everything under one roof.

Run your community in the same place you sell your digital products. No separate logins or distractions, just your audience and your content. With Podia, you can run your entire business on a single platform where you can sell courses, downloads, webinars, coaching, and community.

A community site you can be proud of.

More than just forums, Podia lets you build an entire custom website. Feel confident knowing your audience will love the look and feel of your site, from their first visit through final delivery of your digital products (and beyond!).

A support team there's here for you.

The number one reason people switch to Podia? Our customer service. We’re responsive, receptive to feedback, and always here to help with real people offering live chat support, 7 days a week.
