Wiki farm

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A wiki farm is a site where you can create your own wiki.[1] Getting webspace is usually as easy as requesting an e-mail account.[1] An account will generally allow a certain number of wiki sites and some are free.[1] Most wiki farms let you create wikis that use Mediawiki software, the software that thousands of wikis use.[2]
