Yahoo Hosting Review
Yahoo is a great search engine and new portal but does not provide the best WordPress hosting.
They have a full range of packages and tech support but may not give you the level of customization and flexibility you may need. Yahoo!
- First 3 months heavily discounted
- 24 hour phone support
- Well established shopping cart addon
Yahoo is well known but does not have single hosting focus like many of the other hosting companies. WordPress sites may run a little slower than with some of the other hosting companies.
Yahoo was established in 1994 by David Filo and Jerry Yang. Today, it has become a global service provider widely known for its web portal, search engine, mail and advertising. With its headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, Yahoo also offers web hosting at competitive prices. In January, 2010, the company had the world’s largest market share in online advertising.
