MW Zip was a specialised free MediaWiki host. The service was built from the ground-up for fast, reliable, and secure MediaWiki hosting.
At MW Zip, th staff only hosted MediaWiki and nothing else. As such the servers were tweaked for maximum wiki performance and stability.
Standard wikis had everything fully managed with our automated updates. Every wiki was fully separate and isolated, with no shared users and individual databases. This means they could be customised on a per wiki basis without affecting any other hosted wiki.
Pro wikis were designed for expert users, and had the ability to connect to FTP and SSH2 (command line) for in-depth wiki customizing, such theme and LocalSettings.php editing, installing new extensions, database management, and running maintenance scripts.
MW Zip was founded in January 2014 as a paid managed MediaWiki host. Due to limited interest, in May 2014 the service was changed to free MediaWiki hosting. As of December 2016, the wiki is dead and currently redirects to an archive website.
