geocities.co.jp, the last living Geocities service, shuts down in 2020. Here's the timeline, as I understand it:
* March, 2019 - The ability to update existing pages and to create new pages ends.
* September 30, 2019 - All pages are taken offline. Site owners retain the ability to use FTP to download their site contents.
* March 31, 2000 - FTP access for downloading site contents is removed, and all data is deleted.
