Geocities is closing later this year according to the owner Yahoo!. It's one of the first and in the earliest days also one of the most popular free webhosts.
This is what they have written on their site:
"Sorry, new GeoCities accounts are no longer available.
After careful consideration, we have decided to close GeoCities later this year. We'll share more details this summer. For now, please sign in or visit the help center for more information."
Alternatives to Geocities?
What are your options if you are hosted by Geocities and need a new home for your website? There are plenty of free hosts available still. The big ones from the early days of free hosting are more or less gone, but there are a couple of alternative web hosts. Some have been around many years and some are rather new free hosts.
At freewebspace.net we list free webhosts and you can search for free hosts. You can also discuss free webhosting with other webmasters at our popular webhosting forum (more than 85,000 members).
