I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to build a website with Geocities. Geocities is Yahoo's service which allows you to build and host a website with your yahoo account. To start building your website with Geocities, simply head to Now you can sign in to this Yahoo service using your Yahoo ID. Meaning that if you have a Yahoo email address already, you can use that email address and password to sign in. Now there are two different types of Yahoo Geocities offers, the free offer where you get a free website, but where you have to put up with advertisement on your site, and where you don't get to choose your own web address, meaning instead of having your own, you'll have slash your yahoo ID. However, with the Yahoo web hosting service for which you have to pay a certain price per month you will get to choose your web address, and the ads which are unwanted will disappear, meaning your website will be completely ad free. You'll also get another few advantages like 24 hour service by phone. Now with both of these offers you will be able to build a website very easily, even if you have no absolutely no knowledge of web design. This is nice for example if you're making a family website, to make it that anyone in the family can easily edit and add content to the site. Now, of course you will have less options than if you were making the website yourself with an HTML editor, but you'll still have a few design options. Here's an example of a website designed with Yahoo Geocities.You can see that it has a very clean cut look, and that although some of the websites might look a bit similar, it's still a relatively nice design.
