donate.wikipedia.org is an alias for donate.wikimedia.org.

Service

The Apache configuration for donate.wikimedia.org also answers to donate.wikipedia.org. There is no hostname-wide redirect in place.

If a request is non-canonical or if its response was going to be a redirect anyway (like the root home page), then MediaWiki will use the canonical hostname in its redirect destination.

History

  • 2013: Donation pages moved to a new wiki, donate.wikimedia.org, served by the main Application servers. donate.wikipedia.org is now an alias for that hostname.
  • 2008: Donation pages moved to wiki templates on wikimediafoundation.org. The donate.wikipedia.org hosted on srv9 is now just a redirect to wikimediafoundation/wiki/Donate
  • Before 2008: The donation page used to run the frontend exclusively on this server.
