Personal Home Page Program
Free home pages and email
are among a long list of tools
offered to GeoCitizens -- join one of our communities
and find out for yourself!
Follow these simple steps to apply for your free Personal Home Page, and your free Email account in GeoCities.
Be sure to choose a neighborhood with a theme that corresponds to the content of your Home Page. Don't choose a neighborhood based on its proximity to where you live, but rather choose one whose theme aligns with the theme of your home page. For example, if your page is about the entertainment industry, you should be located in Hollywood. If it's about your favorite sports team, then choose the Colosseum Neighborhood.
Step 2 - Find a vacant address in the correct neighborhood.
We now have two ways to find a vacancy in the neighborhood of your choice.
- The fastest and easiest way is to go the main page of the neighborhood that you chose in "Step 1" above, and choose "Join this Neighborhood". This will transfer you to a page with more details about the neighborhood, and provide you with a method for finding vacancies in the neighborhood at the bottom of the page. If there is more than one choice listed for finding vacancies, it's because the growth of the neighborhood forced us to expand its size, and we created suburbs to accomodate more homesteaders. You're more likely to find vacancies in the suburbs towards the top of the list, as those were added most recently.
- Beginning from the neighborhood's main page, you may search through the numbered address blocks in the residential district by choosing "Browse Great Pages Here" and look for a house that says "vacant" next to it.
Regardless of the method that you choose, you will likely find more vacancies in the higher numbered address blocks, since those were added most recently.
Step 3 - Click on the house (or the number next to the house) that says "vacant" next to it.
This will automatically transfer you to the Application Form with the address portion of the form already filled out. Complete the rest of the form and be sure to give the correct E-mail address, or you will not receive your password allowing you to move in to your new home.
Once the application form is accepted, you will receive an E-Mail confirming your application information, and giving you a password for use in creating your own Personal Home Page. You are then able to use our File Manager Utility
to create your Personal Home Page or
submit your custom Home Page and GIFs/JPGs using our EZ File Upload Utility. You can also send us your custom home page and other files using FTP
. Please remember to take a minute to read our Page Content Guidelines
before you get started.
For more specific help setting up your Home Page, please read our Online Help Guide
and our FAQ Page
. These pages will provide specific information on what you can include on your pages, and how to do it.
