Yahoo to close Geocities later this year

Yahoo announced that it will close the Geocities service later this year. Geocities was one of the first to let people create and host their own webpages. Web hosting has come a long way since Geocities went online. Today, with applications like wordpress, you do not need to be a programmer to have your own website. The web hosting cost has become much affordable too.
