Comparison of wiki hosting services
This comparison of wiki hosting services details only notable online services which host wiki-style editable web pages. General characteristics of cost, presence of advertising, licensing, and Alexa rank are compared, as are technical differences in editing, features, wiki engine, multilingual support and syntax support.
This table compares general information for several of the more than 100 wiki hosting services that exist. The Alexa traffic rankings are a snapshot that will change over time. For wiki hosting services that allow hosted wikis to have separate domain names, the Alexa count might not be complete, since those wikis may have their own Alexa rankings.
