Hosting services

From mediawiki.org
(Redirected from Hosting)

If you want to run a MediaWiki wiki and don't want to maintain your own infrastructure, you might be interested in the wiki farms and hosting services listed below.

  • In addition, most regular web hosting companies allow for installing MediaWiki without too much trouble, although maintaining and upgrading the code would still in most cases be up to you.
  • You can also install a pre-made software bundle or software "appliance" on a virtual private server.

Do not add hosting services to this list without directly linking to a page that explicitly states MediaWiki hosting.
