Wiki Hosting

To check the full list of Wiki scripts available, click here.

What is a wiki?

A wiki is a website that allows the creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a WYSIWYG text editor. Wikis are typically powered by wiki software and are often used collaboratively by multiple users. Examples include community websites, corporate intranets, knowledge management systems, and note services. The software can also be used for personal notetaking.

Wikis serve different purposes. Some permit control over different functions (levels of access). For example editing rights may permit changing, adding or removing material. Others may permit access without enforcing access control. Other rules can be imposed for organizing content.

Popular Wiki Platforms

Three of the most popular Wiki Scripts would be: MediaWiki, DokuWiki, and TikiWiki.

So what do I choose? How do they compare?

MediaWiki is the most popular wiki software as it is the wiki engine that powers Wikipedia. But it always makes sense to explore the features and options of other engines.
All three of them: MediaWiki, TikiWiki and DocuWiki are live and supported projects and you shouldn't have issues with updates and community support. To have first hands experience on all 3 wiki engines you can consider installing them on subdomains first and deside yourself whether their features suit your needs. You can check this knowledgebase article on easy-to-follow steps to achieve it yourself.
