NameJet provides .wiki the complete auction solution needed to manage the .wiki launch. NameJet’s proven platform, by which millions of names are made available and sold, is poised to help bring new .wiki domain names to market with Sunrise expected to begin in March, 2014. Additional details will be made available on NameJet’s New TLDs page as they become available. “The introduction of the .wiki top level domain is a historic event in the evolution of the Internet and we’re excited to be a part of launching such a dynamic TLD,” said
The .wiki TLD will make wikis more valuable through greater visibility and ease of use.

Enthusiast wikis provide a platform to organize information based on shared common interests. The .wiki TLD will empower a revolution for fandom, hobbyists, and academics. Wikipedia is the largest example of an enthusiast wiki, but Top Level Design hopes to foster a boom in specialty wikis.

Most developers are already connected and working with their colleagues via wiki, and so the new namespace will become a natural home base for them.
An individual wiki focuses closely on a person or family, with a .wiki domain name dedicated to an individual, one can participate in the creation process and invite others to do the same. The result will likely be quite different but complementary to a well-written Wikipedia biography.
