BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Just jump right in.
Yahoo! GeoCities was one of the first large-scale, free web-hosting services on the Internet. All hosting companies at the most common level do the same thing: They host HTML documents that are served to viewers' browsers, where they are interpreted and displayed for viewers to read. In the beginning of the Web, everyone had to write his or her HTML by hand. HTML is a simple language that is easy to learn, but many beginners still found that the process of displaying the message could be overwhelming.
Because HTML was so easy to write, it was possible to create an application to write web pages and websites that would live on a server and be available for users who had no idea what HTML was all about. Today, there are many options from which to choose on GeoCities that range from free hosting and web page design to commercial-grade web hosting.
