Build your Wiki site from scratch using the MediaWiki app that comes with your hosting package.
WikiWikiWeb was 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.
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.
It’s so simple; anyone can use a wiki to create a collaborative website, no matter what level of technical skills they possess. 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 our Business and Professional web hosting plans, you can install one of the best wiki software packages on the web. Plus, this app is open source, which means you’ll be able to create your site quickly and at no extra costs.
MediaWiki is the app that powers the giant Wikipedia. Aside from powering many of the largest and most popular wikis online, it is also being increasingly deployed inside company Intranets as a knowledge and content management system. You can easily use it to build a wiki website, create and edit pages, track edits and prevent spam.
