From Wikipedia: "Fandom, also known as Wikia (especially before October 2016), is a wiki hosting service and domain operated by Fandom, Inc. (formerly known as Wikia, Inc.), a for-profit Delaware company founded [initially as 'Wikicities'] in October 2004 by Jimmy Wales and Angela Beesley. As of 2018, it is headed by Perkins Miller as CEO. Fandom uses the open-source wiki software MediaWiki, the same one used by Wikipedia. ... Most Fandom wikis are hosted under the domain fandom.com, but some, especially those that focus on subjects other than media franchises, are hosted under wikia.org."
In September 2019, Fandom acquired the Cortex Prime RPG system.
