    Yahoo! GeoShities was a free webhosting service founded by David Bohnett and John Rezner at least 100 internets ago as Beverly Hills Internet. It had nothing to do with Beverly Hills, and everything to do with 16 year old girls, soccer moms, Your Uncle Steve and everyone who wanted a free webpage with no bandwidth or storage.

    HAY GUYS CHECK THIS OUT

    Apple guy.gifFile:7upspot.gifIt turned into an overly bloated crapfest within a few years.File:Bikini.gif Anybody, and I mean anybody could have their very own webpage yippiee yay File:7upspot.gif lol which made the place slow as fuck, since everybody was crammed onto like 3 servers in somebody's basement. Some argue that it's amazing that Geoshitties lived as long as it did as it clearly was not Web 2.0 and as such was old.

    Despite all this, the company managed to go public and get stocks and everything, which made Yahoo! crap its pants cause that was their job. So they bought out Geocities, and made it even worse somehow. The price? $3.57 billion. Yes, that's Carl Sagan billion with a B.

    The End

    File:Silverbar.gif

    2 computers.gif Yahoo announced on April 23, 2009 that they would finally be dealing with their three and a half billion dollar mistake. On October 26, 2009 management removed every site on Geoshities. The service has been taken off-line for good. The only people taking exception to this are niggers. Why? We don't rightly know.

    And nothing of value was lost. GOODNIGHT, SWEET PRINCE.

    The Geocities spirit of shitty pages covered in animated GIFs, embedded music and eye-searing color schemes lives on at thousands of profile pages on MySpace and Freewebs. File:AOL.gifFile:AOL.gifApple guy.gifFile:AOL.gifApple guy.gifFile:AOL.gif Also, it still lives on Japan, who's suprised?

    Geocities.jp

    File:Japanese Flag.gifEven the underevolved Land of The Rising Sun eventually gave in to the 21st century and removed their version of geocities as well File:Jap Dick Geocities.gif

    Neocities

    In 2013, some new york hipster thought to himself "the web hasn't gone full circle enough", and then he shat out neocities. On this site, your webpage is your oyster, and you're free to be as creative as you want (unless you go above the 1GB limit). So, what do people use it for? Well, the majority of the userbase are sixteen year old lainfags that use it to advertise their weeaboo cyberpunk soundcloud electronic music albums. The other 5% of the userbase are con artists from third world countries making godawful pop-up ridden web pages with outdated html editors, usually advertising viagra or the cure for cancer.
