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!

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
