I have been using Yahoo Domains (through Yahoo Small Business) for several years now, and I have to say that I am very satisfied with my experience with Yahoo. At the time that I chose my domain, there were only a few reputable registrars on the market, and I have seen many either spring up or become more popular since then (such as GoDaddy, for example).
One thing that is great about choosing Yahoo to register a domain is that they have been in business for over a decade with their search engine and other great products to service not only average consumers, but also small businesses and big businesses alike. Because they have a reputation for quality, it’s easy to trust them as a domain registrar.
The thing I really like about Yahoo personally is that you can register your domain and maintain other aspects of your site’s setup easily and effectively. To make things more enticing, Yahoo provides excellent 24/7 customer service and support, so you are never left in a lurch should you encounter any questions or problems.
Getting my domain was easy and straight-forward. I simply created my Yahoo Small Business account, searched for the domain that I was interested in securing – and it was available so I purchased it! For only like 10 bucks a year, you really can’t go wrong. That may be a bit more than some of the competition but Yahoo makes it worthwhile with their additional services and features that they include with registering your domain through them.
You have a few options that vary in terms of cost, depending what you are trying to do with your Yahoo Small Business account. For example, if you want to simply register a domain and do basic things like redirects and so on (which I do, actually) you can do that with their most basic plan. However, if you’re looking to do some more sophisticated things like basic or advanced website building, you can opt to pay either a little more for basic or a lot more for advanced services.
I like the flexibility of being able to upgrade my account if I choose to use Yahoo for more than just domain registration. That makes me sure that as my small business grows, I will be able to stay with Yahoo and upgrade as my updated budget allows.
Overall, I’ve been quite happy with getting Yahoo Domains through Yahoo Small Business. It’s been a good experience and I would recommend this to anyone who wants dependable and secure domain registration. There are competitors on the market, so it’s up to you, but don’t overlook Yahoo, if you want my opinion.
