Why .wiki?

What can you use a .wiki for?

Like other domain endings created in the 2010s, the .wiki domain ending was, in part, created to address the saturation of traditional domain endings like .com or .net by offering new domain endings that are not directly related to geographic zones (countries, regions, even cities). The .wiki domain ending has been open for anyone to register since May 2014 and is in particular focused on everything to do with knowledge and general culture.

The domain ending for sharing information: .wiki

The .wiki domain name refers to Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, which today is maintained and used by internet users around the world in a great many languages. Individuals, organizations, and businesses that want to create a site for encyclopedic information can get a .wiki domain name for their site. This domain ending can just as well be used to create and update informative articles on a wide variety of topics as well as it can be used for discovering them.

Guarantee security with a .wiki domain ending

On a global scale, the majority of internet users will trust a .wiki domain name since Wikipedia is well known and trusted not just as a knowledge source but in terms of its information security.
