There's a lot of information about Notes and Domino on the HCL website, but sometimes it's hard to find or it's hard to know where to start looking.
Here's a list of useful links that can help.
This is the landing page for HCL support, including the Knowledgebase. If you're a registered customer, there's also a link to create a case (trouble ticket) with support.
Flexnet is the system HCL uses to manage software licenses and downloads. However, it's not always easy to use. This article has some good tips.
Links to the online product documentation. In particular, see the Digital Solutions section:

Guide for Upgrading to HCL Notes/Domino 12
A good document for planning and completing your upgrade from older versions of Notes/Domino to version 12.
There is also an older guide for upgrading to HCL Notes/Domino 11.
The new Notes/Domino forum, where you can ask (and answer) questions to the community.
The ideas portal is a site where you can submit feature requests to the HCL product team, and vote on other people's ideas if you like them. There's no guarantee that any of the ideas will be implemented, but HCL does watch the site and several of the ideas have actually made it into the product, including panagenda's very own Advanced Document Properties plugin!
Archived Notes LDD Forums and Wikis
Almost all of the old IBM LDD forums and wikis are also available on the HCL site. This page has a list of links. They're in a read-only state, and they're archived for historical purposes, but there's still a LOT of good information here that can be useful.
The old Fix List database still exists too, and it's still being updated with SPRs and fixes for the latest versions of Notes/Domino.
