Wiki.Wiki is a wiki farm, or a network of wikis, that currently hosts around 100+ projects in 13 languages (see Directory for a complete list or browse Category:Wikis). Anyone is welcome (and encouraged!) to contribute to any wiki by creating an account at the appropriate project. Anyone may also submit a request to start their own wiki at Special:RequestWiki. Wiki.Wiki projects, including this one, run on top of MediaWiki, the free and open source wiki package written in PHP, originally for use on Wikipedia. MediaWiki is used by other Wikimedia Foundation projects and remains the world's most popular wiki software.[1]

Why Wiki.Wiki?

Wiki.Wiki is a great option for wiki enthusiasts who want to focus on creating collaborative content and building community, instead of worrying about domain registration, hosting, and MediaWiki installation and maintenance. Let us take care of those tasks for you! How do we provide these services? Wiki.Wiki offsets the cost of making .wiki domains available and providing free hosting by placing an ad in the lefthand sidebar of each wiki.

Here are three ways Wiki.Wiki differs from competing wiki farms:

  1. .wiki: Projects utilize the .wiki top-level domain, which is perfect for wiki-centric sites.
  2. Free hosting: There is no cost associated with launching a new project and hosting is provided for free!
  3. Customer service: We offer superb customer service. One recent survey respondent wrote, "The onboarding process was one of the best I've ever had on the Internet... Thank you for being so kind, patient and helpful - I felt like I was dealing with an old trusted work friend."

Features

New wiki projects are hosted at .wiki domains and include the following features and extensions:

Top Level Design

Wiki.Wiki is operated by Top Level Design LLC, the Portland, Oregon-based registry for .wiki, .ink, and .design. Top Level Design was founded "with the express intent to deliver a new generation of Internet naming through creative and passion-driven TLDs".[2] The company and its staff are committed to supporting wiki communities and providing collaborative spaces where groups of editors can create content about topics they love.
