The internet was originally designed for scientists to transfer information about their experiments from one to another. Now, it is transferring information from anyone to everyone. The use of Wiki sites is one of the best ways to spread information to the masses as can be seen from a site like `Wikipedia.’
A Wiki is generally a special kind of content management system that is mainly run by user input. Users can register, subscribe and add their knowledge to the already existing information on the site. Wiki is a great way of gathering and sharing information whether it is music, recreation, sports or any subject.
Wiki sites tend to have a snowball effect in heavy traffic once lot of people start using it and therefore the hosting that is powering the Wiki site is very important to its success. Many users want fast loading of the pages and swift server speed round the clock so that they can add and edit their information whenever they like as per their convenience.
