Free Wiki software
Create your Wiki website in minutes
Build your Wiki site from scratch using one of the free apps that come with your hosting package.
WikiWikiWeb is the first Wiki on the web and it was created back in 1995 as a collaborative community space where anyone could contribute with information. Since then, people have created millions of similar sites while staying true to the goals of openness and simplicity.
You can make a wiki website in a matter of seconds and you can use it for anything from personal note-taking to creating a collaborative knowledge database where online communities get to share information and tips. Building it is a breeze as you don't need any technical skills.
What exactly is a wiki?
It's a site developed collaboratively by an online community of users, allowing any of them to add and edit content. The best example is Wikipedia which is the most popular and widely-used platform where people contribute freely with useful information and resources.
Users can add, edit and organise their own content or other people's contributions via a web browser. The simplest and best wiki software allows users to only edit text and hyperlinks. More advanced wiki apps can also offer the options to add or change images, animations or tables.
What's so great about it?
A wiki is simple and anyone can use it to create a collaborative website, no matter the level of technical skills. In other words, you don't need to know any HTML code to create or edit a wiki web page. Just click the "edit" button on an article to add or change anything you like.
With any hosting package from 123-reg, you get to install one of the best wiki software on the web. Plus, these apps are open source which means you'll be able to create your site quickly and for free.
MediaWiki is the free app that powers the giant Wikipedia. Aside from powering one of the most popular sites on the Internet, it also powers thousands of other collaborative sites. You can easily use it to build a wiki website, create and edit pages, track edits and prevent spam. But what makes it so powerful are the 700 settings and 1,600 extensions that you can take advantage of to customise your site and improve its functionality.
