Yahoo review

Review by: Josh, from Wilmington, NC
        I recommend this host

First off, if you're new to hosting, Yahoo could be great for you. If you're pretty experienced and need access to alot of scripts, probably not. As noted in earlier reviews, they run fast, reliable servers, but don't off that many extras, such as more techical sites would need. But still recommended.

Decent hosting

Review by: Max, from Oakland, CA
        I recommend this host

Although they don't offer as many features as other hosts, which alot of sites don't even need in the first place, they are a pretty good host for the simple sites. As noted, they run some pretty fast servers, so your site should load pretty quick also. I would say try them out...

Yahoo

Review by: Monty, from Casper, WY
        I recommend this host

They are good for smaller sites and very reliable. If you need a alot of features, not for you. If you need a very reliable, reputable host, then yes, go for it. Just be aware of what you're getting.

Pretty good...

Review by: Matt, from San Fran
        I recommend this host

The one good thing this host has going for it, is the fact everyone they have some lightning fast servers. Being that Yahoo own and maintains the servers, means you will experience some pretty quick page load times. They don't as many features as the other sites, but if you need a simple site, cheap and fast, check them out.

Although they don't offer as many features as other hosts they do use Yahoo web servers and datacenter, which is tried and true equipment. Would recommend for smaller sites.

Yahoo didn't Yahoo for me

Review by: Lance, from Cali
        I don’t recommend this host

Signed up for Yahoo web hosting thinking it would be the end all of searching for web hosting services. I'm not saying they are terrible, but not the best. They have a decent offering, but features leave a lot to be desired. Uptime is good so far and tech support is O.K.
