Yesterday on October 27, 2009, Yahoo Closed Geocities.  For years GeoCities.com has provided free web hosting to millions of users and yesterday these users found themselves without a place to host their personal and business web sites.   Since Geocities closed up we thought we would write a short post that offers some great web hosting alternatives for the previous users of the free hosting service.

If you want to avoid getting your hosting account closed again, I would suggest investing in a nice affordable shared web hosting account.  Shared web hosting is very affordable and will provide you a long lasting and reliable hosting option.  I would suggest taking a look at AlreadyHosting.com to find the best web hosting provider.

There are three web hosting providers who will work with previous Geocities users to setup a brand new hosting acocunt.  These hosting providers offer hosting for under $4 a month which is VERY affordable, and well worth it!

Great GeoCities Web Hosting Alternatives:

  • BlueHost – $3.49 a month – Bluehost.com is a great American web hosting provider.  This host is most known for their excellent customer support, so if you are looking for a host that will work with you to make the transition smooth, I would suggest Bluehost.
  • JustHost – $2.95 a month – Justhost.com is VERY affordable and one of the fastest growing hosts on the web.  Justhost also provides an anytime money back guarantee, so if your not happy, just ask for your money back.
  • FatCow – $3.15 a month – FatCow is also very cheap web hosting; however, they also excel in green web hosting.  If you are looking for a hosting alternative that is environmentally friendly, this is a great host!
