Yahoo Closes GeoCities - A free web hosting service - GeoCities

Carol Bartz, Yahoo's new CEO, has begun to reduce the fat and streamline operations as Yahoo announces that the company is shutting down GeoCities. The free web hosting service was started in 1995 and was popular in the mid-1990s as web site design has grown. GeoCities has grown over the past decades and will remain functional til mid-year.

Yahoo is promoting that users should upgrade to the Yahoo Web Hosting platform. More details will be coming soon for current users of GeoCities.

A free web hosting service is really not what Yahoo Web Hosting wants to concentrate on, because the Yahoo Hosting plan offers a suite of web-authoring tools that make its plans robust and dependable.
