“best free option”

published 23/12/2000

free, well known

the advert

Geocities is the best free web host. It is very easy to create a website with their online builder. It can be knocked up in a couple of minutes but if you want to make your website looking more professional it is better to design it yourself. Most people who has been using the internet for a...

“A fantasic free web host”

published 04/03/2001

Its free and they have great help

Not a brillaint advanced html editor but its ok

Geocities is one of the biggest webhosting sites on the internet and Really couldn't be any easier to use. All you have to do is either already be a member of yahoo with your own screen name or sign up if your not. The only thing you need is an idea for a website and the will to update it...

Easy to use, free of charge

An irritating bug (see op for details)

Geocities are the people I use to host my website – neither my site nor their service is particularly glamorous, they do ‘exactly what it says on the tin’ and leave the bells and whistles for other people. I’ve only ever used one other server, Acmecity, so I can’t really compare Geocities to the...

“Heaven for Newbies”

published 23/07/2000

Great for Newbies

Bad for experienced

Geocities has always been one of the biggest hosting places on the web. This is because it makes hosting simple for any internet newbie. Its web building tools make building a web-site a breeze to anyone. However the only down side to this is your actual adress is very long. As a result its not...

Free, Feature-Rich, Intuitive

Sometimes Unresponsive, Tools have niggly problems

Geocities lets you put together a website without spending any cash. I wanted to put together my own website for a number of reasons: so my friends could see some of my photos, to enhance my employability by attaining new skills and not least just for the experience of it. Not having a PC at home...

banners, loading time

When I wanted to start creating a website, I knew right from the start that I didn't want to pay for a domain name. I was looking for the best free webpage hosting that didn't require much web design skills, but still made you have a professional style page. I tried the AOL website creator but it...

“Yahoo Geocities”

published 19/04/2001

Free Service, Just brilliant

Ugly Web Address

When I first wanted to build a webpage I really didn't want to buy a domain as their mega-bucks! I started looking around places such as, Homestead, and Tripod. But none of them suited me! Homestead was to easy and was for a first time creater and and just didn't fancy Tripod. So I went to yahoo...

Always running, FTP AND web-based access

Limited amount of web space, no CGI

Yahoo® Geocities® is a good all round web hosting service. It has been my preferred hosting service for some time now. Load speeds are consistently good, and Geocities give each member a reasonable amount of space to put a web site on – of course if you desperately need more space there is...

“Long titles”

published 02/02/2001

Original idea

Old fashioned ways

Geocities have been offering free web hosting since Free web hosting hit the streets. They were one of the first to offer it to the general public and a lot of sites sprang up. You dont see people using it as much now for several reasons. One is the long URL's. The location of the sites can...

“Geocities- The best host.”

published 24/09/2000

I hope you find this review and the opinions in it useful. Geocities is by far my favourite free website host. It is extremely easy to use and has many helpful tools. Geocities is not for beginners and not for experts it is for both. For the beginners there are two easy to use pagebuilders. One...

“Geocities Free Web Hosting”

published 01/02/2001

FREE!! Not many ad's, cool add-ons

None

Geocities from Yahoo!, is, in my opinion, the best free web hosting service available. The service is totally free, not registration or anything. Even then, the only ad's are limited to a small square in the top of the page, which can be closed by the visitor. Geocities URL's consist of...

I first decided to have a web presence about 3 years ago and I really didn't know what to do or how to go about things. I read a few magazines that told me I needed to have a service provider and, although many are free, I needed a service provider that provided good, available technical back-up...
