Definition - What does Geocities mean?
Geocities is a Web domain associated with a free Web hosting service that used to be available in the U.S. but is now only maintained in Japan. The Web hosting service was acquired by Yahoo in 1999, but the company decided to shut it down 10 years later.
Techopedia explains Geocities
Although Yahoo has closed down Geocities operations, Web users can still access some of the sites built through this service. Archiving efforts have secured some of the 38 million individual sites present at the time of Geocities' closure. Developers have also created Geocities simulators to make Web pages look like they were created with Geocities.
