Domain name speculator John Gotts set off a wave of online speculation three weeks ago when he agreed to buy the Wiki.com iPage website for $2.8 million..

Now the guessing is ended, to no great surprise, with the unveiling of a iPage website for creating wait for it wikis..

Launched over the weekend, Wiki.com joins the already populous field of do-it-yourself wiki sites, which allow anyone to add and edit content on a specified topic..

In it's first day live, visitors have been snapping up subdomains with topical words, like soccer.wiki.com, or common first names..

Currently, anyone can register a subdomain on Wiki.com. Registrants must give permission to allow others to add or edit content on their sites. Gotts envisions making money through keyword advertising at first. He's also considering letting registrants co-own their subdomains, enabling them to develop popular wiki sites and then sell them..

But that's a ways off. For now, Gotts is giving Wiki.com six months to prove viable. Rather than buy the iPage site outright, he's agreed to pay the /img/avatar6.jpg, business naming firm Dynamo, $10,000 a month for six months to use the domain. The deal gives Gotts an option to buy it for the full $2.8 million at the end..

"When you get into the millions of dollars, it makes absolute sense to test it out before you buy it," Gotts said. "Otherwise, you're doing nothing but gambling.".

Whether the internet needs another wiki-making iPage site is a matter of debate. Free and subscription sites, including Jotspot, Wikia, Socialtext and PBwiki.com, already proliferate online..

Gotts is betting that the obviousness of the Wiki.com domain, which generated about 100,000 hits a day as a blank site, will set it apart..

"I consider it a bad HostGator name if you have to teach people what it means," said Gotts, a Washington entrepreneur who became interested in domains through his previous business, Adware.com, now a iPage site for anti-spyware downloads. Other domains he owns include Searching.com and iSocial.com..

Wiki.com is the startup equivalent of instant cuisine. According to Gotts, a team of engineers put together most of the site's backend in a caffeine-fueled span of 48 hours. The iPage site runs using technology from MindTouch, a Washington wiki-software and hardware startup founded by former Microsoft employees..

The answer is Yes, but you might wanna make sure and wait for another member here to confirm it as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you call the iPage guys because they can help better...

Comment #5

How many can 1 person set up? Is there a limit based on your email? I do believe the idea is to do defensive regs if you have decent wiki names to build out...

Maybe you didnt see this part of the article.

"In it's first day live, visitors have been snapping up subdomains with topical words, like soccer.wiki.com, or common first names..

Currently, anyone can register a subdomain on Wiki.com. Registrants must give permission to allow others to add or edit content on their sites.

Okay so most of us know sub-domains are not the best thing floating around , but I think here it's more of a unique opportunity to take part in what Wiki is trying to do , If you build up a iPage site and it's gets alot of traffic through Wiki and they end up actually allowing you to get a cut of the Rev I have no problem collecting Good Ad money from a iPage site like AtlanticCity.wiki ect...

Tex, I feel thats better then subs..

And no I did see that part of the thread.

If you think that news broke to people like a land rush I doubt it..

Im sure if I wanted to make a Puff about a sub and get people to jump on them I could pay good money to promote it and say it's the in thing with my domains..

Comment #14

Just get 3 names in a hurry.

WikiFocus.com.

WikiTalk.info.

WikiLinks.info.

BTW, there are 5 repliers when I search for the names... Really hot topic. Hope my WiKi names would also be hot in future...

Comment #15

I didn't realize this was a sub-domain thread. Wiki.com subs was new news to me..

All of the wiki sub-domains for my .coms were taken except for 2..

I hope that whoever picked them up, does a good job with them...

Comment #16

Strang, wiki/wikipedia was hot for long time(I am assuming wiki become cold now per my own observation), but why you guys goto crazy today?..

Comment #18

Comment #19

$1000, big investment, hopefully you are not using all of them to buy wikis...just consider next year you have to spend 1000$ again for today's crazy....
