SiteCloud VS Yahoo

SiteCloud is an eco-friendly cloud web hosting provider that offers customers reliable and scalable website hosting solutions to meet future needs. Yahoo, a renowned search engine, also offers web hosting solutions to both individuals and small businesses at affordable prices. Although Yahoo is a reputable company offering a plethora of services since its incorporation in 1995, SiteCloud delivers more unlimited and unrestricted plans and features.

Whether you’re an individual or small business owner searching for a web hosting provider to maintain a website, the following comparison may be helpful in selecting the best provider to meet your hosting needs and budget.

Pricing

SiteCloud web hosting offers customers a variety of hosting plans including: StormSite Cloud Hosting, Cloud VPS Hosting, and Reseller Hosting. StormSite Cloud Hosting offers customers free setup and lifetime domain for $$4.95/ month. The StormSite Cloud Hosting package is the cheapest plan at an affordable $4.95 per month. The Cloud VPS Hosting plan varies in price ranging from $29.00 to $99.00/month, with Reseller Hosting package from $19.00 to $99.00/month.

In contrast, Yahoo only offers a basic web hosting plan. Pricing depends on whether you purchase the service for one month ($12.95), three months ($8.96 first 3 months, $11.95/month after) and 12 months ($7.46 first 3 months, $9.95/month after).

SiteCloud is the better deal when factoring pricing. The hosting provider offers an affordable basic plan loaded with unlimited features.

Reseller Hosting packages range from starter Tier 1 plans for $19.00/month with 25GB Cloud Storage, 250GB bandwidth, free cPanel client control panel accounts and migrations to the more expensive reseller plan which includes the same perks as the basic plan, upgraded to 125GB Cloud Storage and 1,200GB bandwidth.

Yahoo web hosting services also offers a basic web hosting plan offering unlimited data transfer and disk space and $75 Microsoft Advertising adCenter credit, $50 Google Adwords credits, and 30% discount on Yahoo Local Enhanced Listings, however, don’t be surprised if the company places constraints on how fast your online business can grow.
