Background information on GeoCities Personal Home Page program.
Since you've gotten this far, you've already discovered the power of the Web and its incredible potential for changing the way we work, live and play. One of the main reasons for this is that the Web promotes the free flowing exchange of ideas and information among all citizens on the Internet. The Web has flourished because technology has provided us with a way to link people and their ideas together in a way that was never possible before.
We aspire to be positive contributors to this new culture. We're committed to developing innovative ways to foster the spirit of community that is so vital to the future success of the Internet and the World Wide Web.
Our philosphy has always been that locations on the Internet become easier to relate to when they are rich with content and closely identified with an actual idea or location. In support of this belief and in keeping with the culture of the Internet, we've developed a free Personal Home Page program.
We believe that everybody has a right to their own Personal Home Page in cyberspace. We've developed a unique Personal Home Page Editor
for use in creating your own Personal Home Page. We've created themed communities
to accommodate thousands of Personal Home Pages. We've committed sufficient disk space and bandwidth to support this massive undertaking, and we are looking for individuals who are ready to sign-up
and create their own Personal Home Page.
Our homesteading initiative is just the first step in building World Wide Web based communities that are destined to become a vital part of the Net. Please send us an E-Mail
if you're interested in learning more about helping build the societies of the New Frontier.
Personal Home Page program is designed to provide individuals a way to create their own home on the World Wide Web. This program is supported in part by advertising and sponsorship revenue received from our customers who have established commercial web sites. If you are interested in advertising within one of our GeoCities, or if you would like to set up a web site to promote your business or sell products, please let us know
. We'll be happy to talk to you about it.

We allocate up to 2 megabytes of disk space for each free Personal Home Page, and we also allocate bandwidth based on current requirements and future growth needs.
The purpose of the free Personal Home Page program is to give people the ability to create a home on the World Wide Web that reflects their interests, hobbies and background. If you want to promote your consulting service as well, that's generally fine if your page is also about other things.
The terms of this offer are subject to change at any time without notice. This free offer does not apply to connect time or other charges incurred by the user from their service provider while accessing GeoCities or creating a Personal Home Page. GeoCities reserves the right to use images of homesteader pages for promotional and other purposes.
