Originally founded in 2013, Neocities is a commercial web hosting service that offers free hosting and storage for your website. It is designed to be a safe haven for self-made webmasters and a way to bring creativity back to the web.
aims to bring creativity back to the web
Designed by Kyle McLaughlin, NeoCities is a free Web hosting service that allows users to create and host their own websites. The site is also designed to promote creative web design and self expression.
Unlike many social websites, Neocities does not try to control your content or sell your information. Instead, it encourages users to exercise their creativity by providing tools such as an in-browser HTML editor, an ad-free hosting option, and a command line prompt. Those who want a bit more control over their web presence can opt for a paid plan that offers a higher storage limit, better site performance, and a selection of templates.
In addition to the usual social features, Neocities also features a database of tags to help users search for content. In addition to that, the site also offers a command line prompt for webmasters to help them build their website from scratch.
aims to become the most significant and comprehensive global center for smart sensor, photonics, and nanotechnology
Currently, nanotechnology is innovating in many fields, including aerospace, water purification, geoengineering, and computing. These innovations have the potential to become widely adopted in various sectors. Among the potential applications are the development of ever-smaller sensors and computers, and the creation of integrated packages.
Nanotechnology could also help improve communications. It could improve information processing in the Oval Office and on the battlefield, and create dual-use products in electronics and medicine. It could also enable carbon capture and geoengineering using nanoparticles.
It will enable new systems, such as quantum information systems and neuromorphic engineering. Nanotechnology also allows for the creation of new materials. For example, nanostructured membranes will be optimized for carbon capture, hydrogen storage, and water filtration.
In addition, nanophotonic biosensors will enable the measurement of signals from patient samples. These biosensors will be able to send the results wirelessly to clinicians. It will be important to integrate these nanophotonic biosensors with microfluidics for sample treatment.
aims to be a safe haven for self-made webmasters
During the past year or so, Neocities has grown from a cult of aficionados into a teeming mass of netizens. The site has boasted more than 100,000 users – and growing. The site boasts a suite of powerful web development tools including an in-browser HTML editor, command line UI, and an ad-free sandbox.
As the name suggests, Neocities is a modern take on the venerable GeoCities. The site has a plethora of cool features including a virtual pet store, a shrine to nifty gadgets, and a collection of game fashion photos and videos. The site also boasts a reliable uptime. Its one glaring omission is the ability to create a web page whose content can be managed by any of the site’s users, a feature that was lacking when it launched.
aims to be a nostalgic dream
During the early days of the internet, Geocities was one of the most popular websites in the world. It was a place where individuals could create their own webpages and share them with other people. It was the third most visited website in the world during 1999.
Today, Neocities has re-invented the original Geocities platform by offering free hosting for users, as well as a web-based version of the platform. Its creator, Kyle McLaughlin, hopes to create a safe haven for individuals who are self-made webmasters. He is also concerned with the over-centralized web, and wants to make Neocities a place where anyone can create and share their own websites.
Neocities also plans to include a new storage system called IPFS, which is designed to decentralize storage and file sharing. It is theoretically able to house content that is always online, and will allow users to store and share files.
