In Short

Wikispaces is closing and there is no way to migrate (copy) your site to any other system. CiviHosting is providing a service to migrate Wikispaces sites to “DokuWiki” wikis on our servers. We will copy your entire wiki into a wiki on our servers and keep it online before Wikispaces closes and it’s lost forever.

Hosting fees start at just $15 per month ($180 per year).

For full details, see below. To purchase now, proceed to our Purchase Page, or for any questions, contact us via our Contact Us page.

Full Details

Wikispaces is closing. Closing dates are:

  • Classroom and Free Wikis end of service: 31st July 2018
  • Plus and Super Wikis end of service: 30th September 2018
  • Private Label Wikis end of service: 31st January 2019

Wikispaces provides an export tool, but, as they note on their site, the exported data is not compatible with any other wiki system. They actually recommend that you copy and paste your content into another wiki system, by hand, one page at a time.

CiviHosting, however, is providing a service to automatically migrate Wikispaces sites to DokuWiki sites on our servers.

You can see the full details of what is included and not on our Wikispaces Migrator Tool FAQs page. Briefly, all of your wiki content (text/links/images/media) is converted into a new wiki format which you can continue to edit, add to, and continue to share with your views.

DokuWiki is free, but CiviHosting is not. We have been providing high-quality hosting since 2006, including daily backups, a 24/7 Support Team and more. We focus on the NPO and educational spaces and provide hosting for many Universities including Arizona State, Columbia, the University of Michigan and others.

The fee for a shared hosting account with us with 1GB storage space is $15 per month ($180 per year) and for 100GB storage space is $20 per month ($240 per year). We also have VPS packages for sites with larger requirements or heavy traffic. You can also purchase your own domain name from us for $10 a year, and our hosting includes email service.

We are committed to provide a safe avenue to support ex-Wikispaces users, we have made a significant investment to build the necessary tools and we are actively migrating sites.

There is also the possibility of developing a migration service to MediaWiki or WordPress instead of DokuWiki, contact us to ask about that.

There is also a small possibility that we could provide a lower level of service (no 24/7 support and no custom domain) for a lesser price, if there would be enough interest in that.
