Neocities (a portmanteau of the prefix neo- and GeoCities) is a free web hosting service. Offering 1 GB of storage space and no server-side scripting, the service's expressed goal is to revive the support of "creativity and free expression" provided by GeoCities before its partial shutdown. Neocities offers many more services for $5 per month.[1][2][3]

Kyle Drake started Neocities in 2013.[4] In November 2016 Neocities reported that it had over 101,300 websites on its server.[5] The service has also launched an experimental implementation of IPFS.[6]
