Create your own Wikipedia website. It's that easy!

If you want to start your own wiki website, MediaWiki is just the solution you need. MediaWiki is the open source wiki software that powers Wikipedia, the most popular wiki website in the world.

What is wiki, you ask? Wiki is a website that anyone can edit and the Wikipedia wiki is the best-known platform thanks to the abundance of information, as well as the fact that any user can edit pages and contribute with resources.

MediaWiki is a free wiki platform that powers thousands of websites and non-profit projects, and you can easily use it to create your own wiki website.

With MediaWiki you can:

  • Create your own wiki website
    Once you get your hosting package, you will be able to install this free app and create your own wiki website. There are many ways you can use this online wiki tool and keep in mind that it was designed to work efficiently on sites with high traffic. Some companies are using it internally, as a content management system. In education, students find this tool easier to work with when they're dealing with group projects.
  • Create new pages
    Creating a new page with MediaWiki is a bit different, but you don't need programming skills to do it. To create a new wiki page, you need to build a link to the article you're about to publish. You will see a red link, which means that that page doesn't exist. Click on the red link, edit the page and save it. When the link turns blue, it means the page was created.
  • Edit pages easily
    To make it easier for users with no knowledge of HTML or CSS to edit pages, MediaWiki uses a custom wikitext format. However, after the page is edited, the previous version is only deleted after an administrator checks the accuracy of the modified content. If the information edited is spam, then the previous version is restored on the page.
  • Track edits and prevent spam
    MediaWiki has a Recent Changes feature that allows you to see the last edits to your wiki site. This means that you can see who edited a page and what he modified. You can also use the watchlisting tool to track down edited pages. Add some pages from your wiki site to your watch list and you will be notified each time those pages are edited. If the information is spam, you can easily restore the previous version.

This media wiki software is very powerful. It includes more than 700 settings that you can configure to customise your wiki website, as well as 1,600 extensions that improve its functionality.

Choose your hosting package and your MediaWiki application will also be included. Install it and create your own wiki website right away!
