As most of you know, Wikidot started as a "free wiki" service. For the first two years we were providing free websites for everybody who needed it without any charge. For those with greater demands and requirements we introduced Pro accounts in 2008. More sites, more storage, more features.


More than 60% of our total traffic come from free sites, vast majority of our users have free accounts. Although most of the top-active users pay for a premium account, all of them started with free ones, gradually discovering that it is worth to pay for it.

Free is important. Large part of our business depend on people getting free accounts and starting free sites. And it works pretty well for us — although it is quite expensive to keep a free version available, it definitely pays off in the long term.

We have just received an information from our datacenter operator, Softlayer, about their backbone network upgrade on Sunday, 26. Sep at 6.00 - 10.00 AM GMT. There might be temporary network issues that could affect availability of Wikidot, so please be aware of it.

Yesterday Wikidot team worked heavily on fixing bugs reported on Feedback Site. We fixed six bugs and solved few other internal issues with servers and infrastructure. Now there are only seven (non-critical) bugs left on the list.

We thought it could be a good idea to make Tuesday the day of fixing bugs. This would give us a stricter workflow and our users would know that most of the bugs are fixed on Tuesdays. This mainly applies to long-standing bugs and little annoyances we hate so much, as urgent bugs are fixed as soon as possible anyway.

Summer holidays are over and it's back-to-school time in most parts of the world. And school can be fun, especially when you use a powerful tool like Wikidot for your classes and projects!

During the last 12 months, we counted over 2,000 wikis used for managing classes and coordinating student projects. We received a lot of positive feedback and success stories in our mailboxes. Check out a video shared by Marco Battaglia (in Italian) about a "class 2.0" project and how they used Wikidot.

Wikidot has been successfully offering free educational upgrades for 2 years now, and we highly encourage teachers, lecturers, students and pupils to try them. Check out our Wikidot in Education page for more details, and follow the 3 easy steps to get your own site.

We would like to apologize for problems with Wikidot sites that all our users experienced earlier today. The problem persisted from about 06:34 to 07:24 UTC. It is now solved. There was no data loss.

We are pleased to announce that Wikidot expands beyond its web interface and will be providing automated access to its resources. So far in order to edit pages, participate in discussions and post content our users had to use the web interface — point browser to a page, click Edit etc. Using remote access (API), those tasks can be performed by 3rd party applications on behalf of users.


With this new feature Wikidot can be used for more than just web publishing, and we hope for numerous new applications to emerge.

Today, at 1.04 PM UTC, Wikidot welcomed its 500 000th registered user. We are very happy to see the growth Wikidot is experiencing — in terms of popularity, usage, features and as a business too. We see more and more interesting sites created and many vibrant communities growing, which proves our vision of creating a "wiki farm" worth its effort.
