FANDOM


Until 27 October 2009, a significant proportion of Forever Knight fan websites were hosted by GeoCities (later Yahoo!GeoCities). On that date, Yahoo! closed all unpaid accounts, and the websites became unavailable. However, many had already been moved elsewhere by their owners, turned into paid Yahoo! accounts, or saved in the Forever Knight Website Archive.

This page is provided for the benefit of anyone wishing to discover the new location of those GeoCities Forever Knight websites that still exist.

If you know of additional GeoCities material not listed here, please add it in the appropriate section.

History of GeoCitiesEdit

GeoCities was a web hosting service founded by David Bohnett and John Rezner in late 1994 as Beverly Hills Internet (BHI). The company created its own Web directory, organized thematically in six "neighborhoods" based on districts in Los Angeles. This was later expanded to include numerous "cities", named after real cities or regions. To a large degree, sites were assigned to cities according to their content (for example, computer-related sites were placed in "SiliconValley" and those dealing with entertainment were assigned to "Hollywood"), hence the name of the site. Offering unpaid websites, later supported by advertising in a side-frame, GeoCities appealed to a wide range of people interested in creating small personal sites related to family, hobbies, and fandoms. By June 1997, GeoCities was the fifth most popular site on the Web, and by October of that year the company had signed up its millionth "Homesteader".

In January 1999, near the peak of the dot-com bubble, GeoCities was purchased by Yahoo!, which took control on 28 May. In July, Yahoo! eliminated the neighborhoods and street addresses, instead assigning "vanity" URLs (consisting of www.geocities.com/membername) to all new Yahoo!Geocities sites.

Ten years after Yahoo! bought GeoCities, the company announced that it would shut down the service on 26 October 2009. GeoCities websites actually became unavailable on the afternoon of 27 October.
