Yahoo web hosting was once probably one of the biggest brands in the hosting world and this was a big attraction to hosting newcomers as they have a well known name, but this doesn’t always mean you will get the best service or the best value for money. Yahoo are better known for their search engine technology.
Yahoo Small Business Hosting Review

Yahoo web hosting was once probably one of the biggest brands in the hosting world and this was a big attraction to hosting newcomers as they have a well known name, but this doesn’t always mean you will get the best service or the best value for money.

As you would expect Yahoo does offer a good web hosting solution, and it’s hard to fault their control panel and reliability. Overall you are paying a premium price for Yahoo and we think this is largely due to their brand rather than the advanced features, but with that being said we still recommend yahoo as a top web host, just value for money lets them down.
Yahoo needs one of the most complex data center architectures for their non hosting ventures so they have passed on this knowledge and structure to their web hosting subsidiary to offer secure reliably hosting. As they are not solely dedicated to hosting we believe that their uptime for customers has suffered as being such a huge brand you would expect them to be the number one web host in the world. We have never experienced any long outages with any of our test websites hosting with yahoo though, and believe them to be as reliable as their search engine.
Yahoo web hosting was once quite costly but now is very affordable. Their shared hosting plans start at only $2.92 Month (it was $9.95/month way back in 2011…) so they are now worth considering, even if you are on a low budget. One thing to be aware of is that with their cheapest hosting plan you can only create max. 10 web pages, so their Premier Plan is much better value (create unlimited web pages plus other benefits). Another consideration is the long length of their hosting contracts – you have to sign up for 5 years to get their advertised prices.
Yahoo has designed and developed their very own hosting interface which lots of custom features and services for them. We found their control panel to be self explanatory and it didn’t take us long to work out navigation and feature usage. Their top feature has to be their own website building tools which are easy to use and actually very intuitive so even beginners can almost teach themselves website building.
Yahoo’s customer support is excellent as you would expect. All customers receive 24/7 phone, chat and online support from highly trained technical staff.
