EditMe is a wiki hosting service (sometimes called a wiki farm) based in Westborough, Massachusetts. The service launched in August 2003, and the company officially incorporated in November 2005.[1] In January 2011 the company was acquired by Wakefly, Inc., a web services and Internet marketing firm.[2]

Services[edit]

EditMe offers private wikis with advanced features for businesses, non-profits and educators for an annual fee. An early entrant in the space, EditMe was selected as an Editor's Choice by PC Magazine in December 2003.[3] EditMe attempts to differentiate itself by being a "wiki hosting service that helps non-technical users to quickly and easily build editable web sites."[4]

By February 2010, EditMe's customer base had grown to over 600, ranging from individuals to publicly traded corporations. Customers have included eBay, Microsoft, the US military, the Australian government, The Discovery Channel, UPS, the American Institute of Physics, and several large universities around the world.[5]

In 2011, EditMe announced a partnership with competitor ClearWiki to transfer customer sites before ClearWiki closed for business.[6]

EditMe is also a contributor to the Kiva Loan program, and has offered nearly 400 loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries to help start or grow their businesses.[7]
