A secure, turnkey wiki
August 17, 2005 8:28 PM   Subscribe

A hosted wiki that offers a site-wide password and caters to the less-than-savvy?

I need to centralize an information resource for a group of about 400 people on the internet. A wiki would be perfect for this, but I'm pretty intimidated by most of what I read about configuring and managing such a project. Price isn't too much of an object and server load and bandwidth requirements will be pretty light, but a password-protected* turnkey solution is a must.

*Nothing top-secret will be on the site-- I just don't want "outsiders" to be able to snoop around.

Unless I am mistaken, I don't think PBWiki lets me have my own domain, which (and I should have stated this) is pretty important to me.

pbwiki does allow you to have your own subdomain (e.g. whateveryouwant.pbwiki.com). Would registering a domain and having it forwarded to the pbwiki subdomain be appropriate?

Mediawiki is a very robust system, used by Wikipedia. It may be more than you need to start, but with 400 people, you'd be wise to get something scalable.

It is password-protected.

In lieu of forwarding a domain to pbwiki, you can upload a whole-page frame which would display the pbwiki page but display your URL in the address bar.
