Yahoo! Hosting: New Bells And Whistles

Apparently Yahoo! Small Business hosting is trying to catch up with the rest of the web hosting industry. Today, email was send out with the list of exiting features:

  • Unlimited disk space, so you can forget about running out of room for your web site.
  • Unlimited bandwidth (data transfer) to support even the most complex multimedia site.
  • Unlimited email storage, so you never have to worry about deleting messages to free up room for more.
  • Free Yahoo! Site Solution design tool, which helps you create great web sites quickly and painlessly — even if it’s your first time.

The Site builder is one of the most noticeable improvement, besides increase in hosting space and bandwidth. However if you are and advanced webmaster and would like to have a little more control over your website, Yahoo! Small Business Hosting still can do a little more:

.htaccess (Hypertext Access)
The name .htaccess refers to the main configuration file for Apache, a popular open-source HTTP server. The .htaccess file can be used to create custom error pages and web page redirects, set up password protection, enable SSI, and more. Yahoo! does not currently allow you to upload .htaccess files to your account. For other customization options, we recommend the Custom Error Pages and password-protection features available in your Web Hosting Control Panel. – Yahoo! Small Business Help

Still the unlimited hosting space and bandwidth are huge improvements. If you have used or are currently using Yahoo! Small Business Hosting feel free to share with the rest of us what is your impression of this provider.

    Thanks for being my friend.

    You really put together a nice information here.

    I am sure you will be an inspiration to many people.I use go daddy code all the time and it really helps to save me money while brainstorming ideas for domains. Other codes in this family include ZINE1 (Save 10% on anything), and ZINE2 (Save $5 off $30).
