Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am interested to host a site like SO and its variants.

Where can I find the pricing?

SE is not for sale (not any more). They have decided to make it a platform where anyone can suggest a new Stack Exchange site through the specially designed Area51 website.

They have done it this way so that the stackexchange sites can gain the community that is needed for it to be sustainable.

the platform is open source? thanks. – LaTeX Jan 31 '11 at 10:45
No, it's not open source. There are some open source alternatives, but they aren't as complete as Stack Exchange. – Ikke Jan 31 '11 at 10:53
thanks. What is the alternative? Could you tell me? – LaTeX Jan 31 '11 at 11:04
