Neocities is a web hosting platform founded by Kyle Drake on May 23, 2013, and launched on June 28, 2013. It provides 10 megabytes of file storage for every user and was initially an archive for sites previously hosted on GeoCities before the latter's shutdown.
After the rise of screamers sites like Shafou.com, Killerjo.net, and Anne.jpg, several screamers sites made with Neocities also began to emerge from the platform, including Red Button and Cool Cute Cat. However, as a platform that allows users to create and publish their own websites, there is always the potential for malicious users to create and distribute harmful content through Neocities. This can include the use of malicious scripts, which are code snippets designed to perform unauthorized actions on a user's computer or device. Kyle Drake created Neocities on May 23, 2013, and launched it on June 28, 2013. Initially serving as an archive for sites formerly hosted on GeoCities before its shutdown, Neocities has since grown into a popular platform for creative individuals and communities and become a hub for personal blogs, portfolios, online art galleries, and experimental web projects.
