  1. Hello, I Have a Question!

    I have a blog for Technology How-TO Tutorials like wiki how.
    currently, I am using blogger, now I decided to take the further step to buy hosting for my blog.

    Big Question is Which Software will work best for my blog “Mediawiki or WordPress”

    Thank you!

    • Hello Rajat,

      We have gone through your website and Mediawiki is not meant for the blog. If you are planning to create a knowledge base website like Wikipedia then the Mediawiki is the good option in opensource. But you have a blog then you should go for WordPress because of reliability and huge plugin database to enhance the website functionality.
