The web hosting division at Yahoo! has been growing strong since 2002. If you are looking for small business web hosting services you might be well advised to consider the fact that Yahoo! is already home to more than 30 million web sites and they manage over 50 terabytes of data. Yahoo! Small Business Web Hosting provides a very simple to use templates that even a beginning webmaster will appreciate.
Pricing and Value:
Yahoo! Small Business is especially competitive if you are developing a new business web site because they do not require a long-term contract but allow you to rent their service on a month to month basis. Yahoo! Small Business offers three virtual hosting plans for small business. Each plan provides free domain name registration with no renewal fees for as long as you host with Yahoo!
Yahoo! Small Business web hosting accounts come with a $50 Yahoo! Search Marketing credit and a $50 Google AdWords credit. Your business web site will need these advertising services and this also provides a great opportunity to learn valuable skills that you will use over and over again.
Yahoo! has a record of outstanding reliability performance and web hosting accounts enjoy the same hardware and software infrastructure as that used for the search engine. This means state-of-the-art server hardware, software, and distributed redundant Internet connections. Yahoo! also operates multiple domain name servers (7 were online when we checked) to insure uninterrupted rapid domain name lookups.
Yahoo! Small Business Web Hosting provides you with 24 hour toll-free telephone and email support. On every occasion we have rated their customer service support to be excellent.

Yahoo! Small Business Web Hosting is highly recommended for beginning web masters who want to develop and publish a web site with little or no computer programming experience. We also highly recommend Yahoo! if you are looking for one of the most reliable services on the Internet. Finally, you should consider Yahoo! if you want to work only with the most highly-skilled customer and technical support staff the Internet has to offer.
Some customers have complained that Yahoo! Small Business Web Hosting prices are too high. We believe that if reliability, network bandwidth, redundance, and personnel skill levels are considered that Yahoo! is easily a better bargain than most bottom-dollar web hosting operations that don't come close to the technology infrastructure of Yahoo!
