Introducing Epik Marketplace for Wikis

By July 18, 2010 February 27th, 2017 4 Comments

The Epik Wiki solution has grown quickly since the announcement on July 4.  Our Wiki platform provides a free solution for building sites that are crowd-edited.  It is perfect for How-to sites, People sites and Reference sites. And now, we go one step further by offering a Wiki marketplace where the Epik-powered sites can be bought and sold.

Why do we need more Marketplaces?
The remarkable success of Flippa.com is indicative that there is market demand for a place to buy and sell sites. However, if you have ever bought a site there, you realize that this is not an efficient marketplace and there is nothing Flippa can do to solve it.  Why? For anyone looking to build a portfolio of income-producing sites, there is an inherent scalability challenge. In particular, every developer builds on a different platform. This means that every new site purchase means integrating assets that were inherently incompatible.  Surely there is a better way.

By integrating site development with a marketplace, it becomes possible for domain developers to be able to manage integrated portfolios without having to worry about the back office requirements for operating the sites. At any given time, there will be domain developers who need to sell as well as domain developers who want to grow their portfolios. If developers have a shared platform, the “integration” of the acquired site is a non-event.  This is what Epik-powered marketplaces will be working to solve.  In other words, once a site is purchased, the acquired SITE is added to your account, including historical data about the site and control of all of the content.

    If I could only move my sign-in info to identity.net, then I could create wikis for some 200 names in my portfolio. Names such as: Internet-Television.biz. That would make a great wiki! Integrate with some videos, etc., available on the wiki platform. Does the admin have editing power over youtube videos?

    So far, I pointed JesusMontoya.com to epikwiki, and have a site I cannot login or edit.

    Thanx!
    Louise 🙂

    @Louise — to be an admin on a Wiki, here are the steps:

    1. Create an identity at identity.net. I checked and your email is not at Identity.net.

    2. Be activated as an administrator. By default, the registrant is an admin. I just sent you instructions via email on how to bypass the WHOIS when the situation calls for it.

    Okay, I signed up and edited: JesusMontoya.com , but never received an email. There’s lots of flexibility, but I can’t edit the videos on the side. I can embed some videos within the editable part. Oh, I wasn’t able to post a flash mp3player.
