Yahoo! is one of the most recognizable internet brands in the world. And with their own brand of web hosting they offer anything and everything a business or personal website needs to get off the ground, and promoted on the web.

Which of these top web hosting brands is right for your website? Do you need the power and world-class tools of Yahoo!? Or does JustHost provide everything you need without the “extras”? Read our comparison and recommendation below.


JustHost offers a single plan at just $4.45 per month, down from their usual $6.95 per month.

Yahoo! Web Hosting offers their brand of hosting for $7.46 per month for 3 months, and then $9.95 per month thereafter. Or just pay month to month for $12.95/mo.

Products and Services

Yahoo! is one of the top experts on internet SEO. Thus, they provide plenty of services related to drawing customers to your website, and the tools to analyze the results. They provide domain registration, site building tools, marketing and promotion, as well as tracking and reporting services.

JustHost sticks to the basics. They do provide a free site builder and will help with domain transfer. And they offer over $125 in free marketing extras with Facebook, Google, and Yahoo!. And they give an anytime money back guarantee to all clients.

Web Hosting Features

With JustHost you get unlimited bandwidth, disk space, hosted domains, email accounts, and MySQL databases. You’ll also get the necessary support for any popular scripting, and multi-media files you want to share. They also provide free software plugins, and offer free eCommerce solutions.

Yahoo! is mum on the amounts of necessary web requirements such as bandwidth and disk space, leading to believe it is monitored and capped at an undisclosed threshold. 1,000 email accounts are provided, as well as multi-media support, eCommerce solutions, and support for popular scripting languages.

Customer Service

Yahoo! customer service consists of an online wizard that helps narrow your question down to Q&A and some tutorials. No phone or other live contact is provided.

JustHost offers 24 hour live support via phone, chat or email. Plus they give all clients an online help center filled with helpful video tutorials and articles.


Yahoo! is certainly no slouch when it comes to web hosting. But for the general consumer that includes personal website, bloggers, and small or medium sized businesses, JustHost has everything you need at a lower price and with better customer service, all backed with an anytime guarantee. Our recommendation goes to JustHost.
