The Internet In 1996

Old GeoCities homepage 1998


Another service you may have likely gravitated to as a webmaster in the 1990s, after experimenting with your free AOL home page a bit, was Geocities. In fact, many of us fossils had our first websites hosted there, after all, Geocities offered up to 10 megs of free space to host your site in one of their communities! So what community did you pick with Geocities? Was it RainForrest? HotSprings? I know Enchanted Forest was a popular Geocities neighborhood for many.  Eventually, as we matured, we found real hosting services, and Geocities limped along for a good part of the 2000s. It was finally put to rest in April 2009. RIP Geocities.
