A fantasic free web host

AdvantagesIts free and they have great help

DisadvantagesNot 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 regulary or stick with it untill its finished. My advice to start off with is if you are amazing at making web pages with using only HTML codes then get a decent ..." Read review

Well, it's free...

AdvantagesEasy to use, free of charge

DisadvantagesAn 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 range of alternatives and let’s just say I got fed up with Acmecity and leave it at that, shall we? OK, let’s not, let’s gleefully add that Acmecity is, in ..." Read review

Yahoo Geocities

AdvantagesFree Service, Just brilliant

DisadvantagesUgly 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 and searched, 'Free Webpage' and it came up with Yahoo Gocities. I signed up and was given a free webpage. The first thing that come up when your logged ..." Read review

Reliable, fast, quality hosting

AdvantagesAlways running, FTP AND web-based access

DisadvantagesLimited 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 no reason not to sign up an additional account and place files in that space. Being backed by a major Internet company, Geocities is up just about 100% ..." Read review

It's Hard to be a Saint When You're in the City

AdvantagesFree, Feature-Rich, Intuitive

DisadvantagesSometimes 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, I needed a cost-free connection that was simple to pick up and use. Geocities fitted the bill nicely. FREE SPACE I already had a Yahoo! mail account ..." Read review

Yahoo Geocities is Simply the Best

Advantagesfree service, requires no html skill, pro looking pages

Disadvantagesbanners, 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 allowed you to just place your personal information, and it was on 3rd grade level. I tried other confusing hosts like Tripod and Xoom, and none of them ..."

Heaven for Newbies

AdvantagesGreat for Newbies

DisadvantagesBad 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 exactly very good for setting up a business page, however, its great for personal stuff. Geocities is a great place for you to host up your site (you even ..." Read review

Advantagesfree, well known

Disadvantagesthe 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 while have heard of geocities so when you give your web address to someone they are more likely to remember it. Compared with other free web hosts geocities ..." Read review

Geocities.com - Scam or saviour

Advantages- See op

Disadvantages- See op

"Geocities.com, a well known provider for free webspace is a subsection of Yahoo.com, an origionally small start engine that begun with two japanese students. From here, Geocities and Yahoo both have grown into thriving buisnesses, one of which was dedicated to providing free webspace for people to use so that they might publish their own websites, whether for pictures, art, poems or almost anything you can think of, they'll host you. Unlike many rival ..." Read review

AdvantagesFree space, good tips.

DisadvantagesNone

" Have you ever thought about setting up your own web site? A site dedicated to your works of art, perhaps, or photos of your baby as she grows; essays on love or pictures of Kate Bush? And have you been deterred because of the following reasons: It will cost me money It will be just too hard I don’t have the time Well, Geocities can help with two of those problems. They not only offer free web space, but they also offer a page builder ..." Read review

The Truth about Yahoo Geocities

AdvantagesFree. Good. Tracking abilities. Easy add ons.

DisadvantagesI can easily fill 15Megs.

"In this review I am going to try and correct a nasty rumour about Yahoo! Geocities. I like Geocities. Geocities is now part of the Yahoo! Empire and in many ways this is a good thing. It means, for example, that you can plug into all their services… and more importantly, Geocities makes it easy to do this. They will, for example, give you cut’n’paste code that will put a smilie face graphic on your page that lights up to tell visitors that you ..." Read review

Want a website NO PROBLEM

AdvantagesEasy 2 use

DisadvantagesNot great for experts - I'm guessing

"I only dicovered geocities today, and what a revelation it proved to be. Before I found this I thought making a website would be a complicated process involving a lot of time and prior knowledge to set up. Only 10 minutes later I had a funky looking website, and after a couple of hours of fine tuning and adding features i now have a fantastic looking website with a counter, tic tac toe game, guestbook and even a bouncing santa!! If you have ever ..." Read review

Geocities- The best host.

Advantages

Disadvantages

"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 drag and drop builder and the other you just answer some questions and your website is made. But if you know html but not a lot you can also add some html ..." Read review
