Wetpaint is was a company or wiki farm which offered free hosted wiki websites to anyone who wants to create one. The company's product offers visual ("WYSIWYG") editing and threaded comments, using its own unique wiki engine. It is financially supported by contextual advertising. Sites utilizing Wetpaint technology include wikiCancer, wikiFido, BobDylanwiki, wikiGOP, Independent Film Wiki, Everything Wiki and a public testing site entitled wikiSandbox. Wetpaint wikis are editable, but the edit button is in near the top left, unlike MediaWiki wikis. Wetpaint licenses third-party use of the Collective Content and Submissions under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike 3.0 license. [1]

The company is located in Seattle, Washington, and received its initial venture capital funding from Trinity Ventures and Frazier Technology Ventures.

Wetpaint launched its private beta program in March 2006, and became publicly accessible in June 2006. Wetpaint was named Best Wiki (Hosted) by the SEOmoz Web 2.0 Awards.
