Welcome to MyWikiBiz, and thank you for your interest in opening a User account. Once you have your User account, you will be able to create new pages and edit existing ones on MyWikiBiz.

We ask new editors to make a small, one-time payment to open a User account. This is because MyWikiBiz incurs annual hosting, server, and developer costs of over $1,000. For the first seven years of our site's operation, we tried the "free to edit" policy. Unfortunately, this had the effect of attracting thousands of spammers who only wanted to abuse MyWikiBiz for links back to their highly questionable product sites. Our server could no longer withstand the load, and the site would crash frequently, sometimes taking days to restore. This punished all of our good editors who had created legitimate content.

So, by requiring a small payment from new editors, we are ensuring that you understand MyWikiBiz is not to be used for publishing spam links. Feel free to market your product or business, but do so in a way that conforms to an "encyclopedia" or "directory" style.

Once you submit your the form below and confirm your email, you will receive a PayPal invoice from MyWikiBiz within 48 hours. Follow the link complete the payment to activate your account.
