We have enjoyed hosting web sites created by Yahoo! users all over the world, and we're proud of the community you've built.
However, we have decided to focus on helping our customers explore and build relationships online in other ways. Beginning on October 26, 2009, you can no longer use GeoCities to maintain a free presence online but we're excited about the other services we have designed to help you connect with friends and family and share your activities and interests.
We recommend our award-winning Web Hosting service, which works a lot like GeoCities but includes a personalized domain name (such as widgetdesigns.com) and matching email, terrific new site building tools, unlimited disk space and bandwidth, premium customer support, and more. See more on moving to Web Hosting.
If you downloaded your pages and images to your own computer, you can also re-create your site with another hosting provider. See more on hosting providers.
Yahoo! GeoCities Plus customers: Although GeoCities has closed, your friends and family can still view your web site as usual. However, you can no longer access your files or update your pages with GeoCities tools. To update your site, you'll need to upgrade to Yahoo! Web Hosting. You can now upgrade at no extra charge for five years. See details or upgrade now.
Another Way to Connect Online
As a Yahoo! customer, you can now use your Yahoo! profile as a central point to manage your identity, activities, and interests across Yahoo! and make it easy to connect and share with the people who matter to you most.
You can get started anytime by adding your picture and other personal details, then invite friends and family to connect — even start your own blog. You'll be able to follow the online activities of your connections across Yahoo!, such as a recently Buzzed article, a new profile status, or a rating on Yahoo! TV.
The Internet Archive, a nonprofit founded to build an Internet library and archive the public Web, worked to archive as many GeoCities web sites as possible before GeoCities closed. To see if your site was preserved, visit Archive.org and enter your site's web address in the field provided. See details.
