Yahoo Small Business review

Pros

Yhoo Small Business providing a good and easy to use website builder, that employ a drag & drop type of builder. It is very easy and can be use by anyone without any technical knowledge. It is the main attraction of this software, for a novice user to create their own website.

Cons

The catalogue for the website theme is limited and not many choice that i can choose for the theme that really fit my website objective. I would love to see several more option that i can choose from it. It would also be good if they can give manual guide on how to edit a simple Html on the website.

Avarage software for business email hosting

Yahoo Small Business is good option for a small company or new comer that want to have a business email. I have to switch to other email hosting service as i need more complex tools to automated my email process. Building a landing pages or static website is possible and not confusing for a novice user like me.

Pros

I liked that there are option for managing my personal business email and building web design using my own domain name. In term of managing email, they offer a very spacious email space to store all my email and i don't have to clear main inboxes. I also can design a basic website using the website builder and the drag and drop features make it so easy to use.

Cons

Things that make me to switch to other email services is, there are no new features and tools added to the service. There are no option to have a fast communication with user in my contact list and i need to send email for communication purpose. They should learn from Gmail to be more competitive and gives more value for us user.

Reasons for Switching to Yahoo Small Business

I use Hubspot Marketing Hub for planning email marketing campaign, and Yahoo for personal and business emails.

Yahoo Small Business - Buyer Beware

Our goal was to find unified hosting for our email and website, without "breaking the bank". Yahoo, at the time, was a trusted name in email and internet search. The monthly pricing was was low-to-average, and the ability to use your company email via the Yahoo webmail portal was a nice "bonus". What was not known was that... (1) every employee using an "@mybusiness.com" email address was required to first sign up for a standard Yahoo account and then sync to their business account; (2) the administrator tools - especially email administration - were severely lacking; and (3) that the Yahoo Small Business servers were not as secure as they could have/should have been. All of our corporate information hosted by Yahoo was compromised, and we were forced to move to a different website/email host. Overall - not an experience we would like to repeat.

Pros

Integration with Yahoo Webmail Platform; Ability to sync to Yahoo accounts; Low overall cost

Cons

Lack of administrator tools (ie: inability to access employee email accounts, reset user passwords, etc.); Sub-par security; Spam emails coming from Yahoo itself; slow loading times on Yahoo-hosted websites

Reasons for Choosing Yahoo Small Business

We went with Yahoo based on pricing, ease of use, features, and the generally good reputation (at that time) of Yahoo.

Good for startup website

Pros

I established my first webpage for my internet business using Yahoo Small Business. I had no idea what I was doing, but I quickly followed up with the manual and guides. Thankfully, my colleague was well-versed in HTML coding and took care of everything for the website. After that, I was in charge of everything, including photo editing and pricing.

Cons

Interacting with customer assistance is difficult. I couldn't see anywhere a phone number to contact to speak with customer service. I had to deal with all of my problems via email. They did assist me when I needed it, although it takes a week or longer in certain cases.

Reasons for Switching to Yahoo Small Business

Yahoo Small Business has direct steps in building my personal website and didn't cost too much.

Manage own email domain easily

For a small business or a newcomer who needs a business email, Yahoo Small Business is an excellent choice. I need to change email hosting services because I require more advanced software to simplify my email process. For a beginner user like me, creating landing pages or a static website is feasible and not tricky.

Pros

I liked that I could manage my domain email and create websites using my web address. In terms of email management, they have a large email storage room for all of my emails, and I wouldn't have to empty my mailboxes. I can also use the website builder to create an essential website, and the drag-and-drop features make it very simple to use.

Cons

The lack of new functionality and resources in the app is one factor that has caused me to turn to other email providers. There is no way to communicate quickly with users on my contact list, so I must rely on email for communication. They should take a page from Gmail's book and become more successful and have more value to their users.

Reasons for Switching to Yahoo Small Business

Zoho Mail has low uptime and it keep interrupting my work progress.
