Cost & Value

While slightly more expensive than other web hosting providers, Yahoo offeres excellent customer support, reliability and many tools for beginners. These tools include integrated installation of popular blogs like WordPress, standard surveys and email forms, web calandars, phpBB bulletin board, plus many other web site enhancements. Other perks you will receive includes $100 and $50 coupons to use towards advertising your business with Yahoo! Sponsored Search and Google Adwords.

Reliability & Performance

Reliaibility is always a key factor in a web host. With a server up time of over 99.9% you can't go wrong. Their web hosting servers use the same reliable infrastructure as rest of the Yahoo! network with multiple redundant links to internet backbones. Plus, all of their web hosting servers use Unix and Apache so you know you will have a stable and secure enviroment for your web site. All servers include SpamGuard Plus and Norton AntiVirus installations to help prevent the spread of viruses through your email accounts and on your web site.

Customer Support

If you don't want to worry about a thing and have excellect Customer Service, Yahoo! Small Business Web Hosting is your safest choice on the internet today. In my opinion this makes their slightly higher monthly price worth it. If your needs include more advanced features in web hosting and you consider yourself a web power user you may want to consider another option.
