Wikispaces is a web hosting service (sometimes called a wiki farm) based in San Francisco, California. Launched by Tangient LLC in March 2005, Wikispaces was purchased by TSL Education in March 2014. It competes with PBworks, Wetpaint, Wikia, and Google Sites (formerly JotSpot). It was among the largest wiki hosts.
In September 2014, TSL Education announced that free hosting of non-educational wikis would cease. These wikis face a 14 November 2014 shutdown deadline. Only wikis used exclusively in K-12 or higher education will remain free.
Since 2010 Wikispaces have cooperated with web 2.0 education platform Glogster EDU. Glogster EDU embeds Glogs into Wikispaces services.
