There is still a GeoCities service in Japan but next month it will come to a close. Founded by David Bohnett and John Rezner in 1994, GeoCities was the first ever free web hosting service. Here is the earliest archived version of GeoCities and here is GeoCities in January 1999, a few days before acquisition by Yahoo. But what is not clear is how anyone contributed, looking at those old webpages, there seems to be no login link. Logins to websites were quite rare or didn't exist at that time, and I'm not sure if browsers of the time included support for web-cookies, let alone whether it was part of the core. I know that GeoCities did host websites, at least of a certain sort, but what about blogs. And could it host cloud storage services?
