Flee Geocities Before It Closes Forever

Before Blogspot and WordPress, and even before Google, there was Geocities. But no more. If you have files or content stored on Yahoo’s GeoCities service, be sure to back up or move or it by Monday. That’s when the service, an early free web host and nerd training ground, closes down forever. It’s like part of my lonely, geeky adolescence is about to die.

Yahoo, of course, suggests that GeoCities holdouts move their sites to Yahoo’s paid web hosting service for only $10/month.

Do you have a free or cheap host that you like and can recommend for GeoCities refugees? Share recommendations in the comments.
