The next step for a collaborative Internet.
In today’s day and age, a ‘wiki’ is considered the universal language for online collaboration. It is a recognized platform where individuals can share their expertise and ideas about a specific topic, while continuing to learn from other like-minded contributors. The flexibility of this domain extension allows anyone to start a wiki, which they can open it to peers, colleagues or the entire world for their involvement. That is why a .WIKI domain extension is a necessity for every online peer development project.
Who it’s for
- Enterprises looking to coordinate operational best practices, develop new projects, or provide an accessible employee handbook
- Enthusiasts that wants a fan site or a resource that educates about a specific subject
- Developers who want to come together on their own time to quickly create an open-source project or shared resource
Wikis have proven themselves to be a revolutionary collaboration technology. They are elegant in their simplicity and are used internally at nearly every major and medium sized company, in addition to being the foundation of one of the most popular websites in the world, Wikipedia. The .wiki TLD promises to usher in a new era of shared resource creation.
The .wiki TLD is the first platform-specific TLD to launch, so all users will know that they are accessing an engaging knowledge base when they navigate to .wiki sites.
.wiki is for:
- Enterprise: Many, many companies already use wikis to keep their staff coordinated, brainstorm, and hone their best practices and employee guides. A .wiki name at CompanyName.wiki will maximize their effectiveness given its direct and memorable URL. Progressive companies will secure .wiki names in their vertical markets, such as health.wiki, and build authoritative guides to solidify themselves as market leaders.
- Enthusiast: Academics and fans alike will converge on .wiki to create dynamic resources related to their fields of study or passion. Fans of sports teams, fantasy fiction, video games, movies, TV shows, and other rich topics will be able to document every detail of the worlds that matter to them and their peers. Academics will work together and with their students to establish continually growing knowledge bases.
- Developers: Technical developers have always been important wiki evangelists. They use the platform to coordinate with their peers around the world to create new solutions and tackle exciting tech projects. By working on .wiki names their work will become even more visible to other potential contributors.
- Individuals: Creating a site at FirstLastName.wiki broadcasts your relevance to the world -- whether it be a genealogy project for your whole family, a biography site, or a fan site, working on an individual .wiki establishes you front and center.
The Key Benefits of .Wiki:
- It’s universal: In fact, the word “wiki” is actually Hawaiian, but it has long since entered the global vocabulary. Whether you use a wiki in your office, in the classroom, or just got done browsing Wikipedia, everyone knows this universal word and how to navigate and contribute to a wiki site.
- It’s engaging: An internal wiki allows your staff to overcome time and distance in their work; an external wiki allows you to engage your vertical market and your peers and colleagues. Wiki is a collaborative technology by definition and so .wiki domains are naturally more dynamic than other sites.
- It’s the first platform TLD: You’ve seen it here first, a TLD that is dedicated to just one solution and platform! This is a new concept and there are very few other TLDs that fit the bill as a “must” for anyone inclined to create a resource around a given topic.
Start building, together
There is no greater way to get a group, staff, classroom, or community into a productive conversation with one another than with a .wiki. The TLD clearly broadcasts your intent to build an engaging group resource and will allow you to take your teamwork to the next level.
