Today GeoCities closes forever. Not just closing but being deleted, forever. I remember back in the 90’s when I did something? with GeoCities or maybe that was Angelfire. I cannot remember which but either way, those days are pretty much gone. Surprising people still use such free hosted sites though, some companies do it great while others fail to upgrade and just are stored as wasted space.
GeoCities was started in 1994 then later bought out by Yahoo in 1999. Earlier this year in April, Yahoo announced they would no longer be accepting new registrations and gave users more than enough time to save their content. As well as let users visitors know their site would be closing or moving.
