Wow, another retired legacy. I remember Geo Cities was probably the first "Get a free website" option out there (if you didn't mind annoying ads). Everybody had one for a while.

Yea, It's really sad to see them go. Imagine the internet before twitter, youtube, myspace, hell even google. RIP old friend. D:

I used it as my webhosting for images for years. Was sad to see it go as well. Its not much different with the Yahoo takeover though. You still get the same amount of image hosting. The links have changed but the look is the same and operations are similar.

So it is gone, anyway those annoying ads were ugly, ans the space was small, anyway it was free Smiling
