What is Wikibase?
Wikibase is an open source software suite for running a collaborative knowledge base. It has been developed by Wikimedia Deutschland for the Wikidata project and can be used by organizations for publishing and interlinking data. Wikibase allows representing multiple points of view, referencing sources and is multilingual, making it appealing to institutions in the GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums) sector.
If you are not familiar with Wikibase and are looking to get stared with wikis, we recommend going with one of our standard hosting plans. We will suggest Wikibase if we notice it fits your use case. You can also check out our comparison of data management wiki software.
Why Wikibase hosting?
Wikibase is difficult to set up compared to a standard MediaWiki wiki. At present is also lacks stable releases, which makes upgrading extremely challenging and risky to anyone who is a not a developer already familiar with the software. We have been working with Wikibase since its inception and Professional Wiki is proud to provide the first professional Wikibase hosting service.
What is included in Professional Wikibase?
Professional Wikibase will get you a fully installed and configured Wikibase wiki. It also includes a standard set of extensions and wiki templates selected based on our long-time experience of what you are likely to need.
Professional Wikibase comes with the Blazegraph graph database, allowing you to run SPARQL queries against the data in your wiki. A Memcached cache server is included for increased performance and everything runs on a capable VPS that allows you to grow your wiki without immediately running into problems.
An Elasticsearch search server can be included to give you more powerful search options for 50 EUR per month. Two hours of professional support per month can be included for 150 EUR per month. All prices excl. VAT.
