Angelfire is an Internet service that offers website services. Founded in 1996, it was originally a combination website building and medical transcription service. Eventually the site dropped the transcription service and focused solely on website hosting, and was purchased by the search engine company Lycos in 1998.
Angelfire's original service offering was modified to have parity with Tripod—also acquired by Lycos—including the addition of an increased amount of advertising, but also by offering more disk space.
Although not as popular as its counterpart GeoCities, Angelfire was home to many fan pages in the mid-to-late 1990s and early 2000s; however, unlike GeoCities (which closed in 2009), the site is still active and offered web hosting services with free (20Mb) and paid membership plans into the 2010s. Free webpages are no longer available.
