Yes you can use WordPress with Yahoo Web Hosting and here’s a post explaining How to setup WordPress with Yahoo Web Hosting. However you should reconsider using Yahoo Web Hosting with WordPress for the following reasons:
My personal experience with Yahoo Web Hosting is that the customer service is poor and the server isn’t that reliable or fast. After trying many hosting providers I ended up with SiteGround, which is the best hosting provider bar none.
Just in case you’re still unconvinced as to whether to join Yahoo Web hosting, here are some reviews:
Yahoo Web Hosting Reviews
Here’s some recent reviews from others that reflect my own experience. Yahoo Web Hosting has an average user rating of 2.5 among 75 users.
The quality of the domain and web hosting was never spectacular, but over the years it just went from bad to worse.[star rating=”2″]
I have had a site with Yahoo for about 10 years. Their systems have been out of date for a long time, but they used to be reliable. Now the only thing that works reliably is my WordPress blog, but I have to fight my way into it every day… [star rating=”1.5″]
Yahoo does NOT allow you to cancel a plan unless you CALL them and good luck with that… I’ve been on the phone for over 60-minutes and they still can’t “figure out” how to cancel my plan… Just use 1and1 or another web hosting/domain service. You’ll save yourself time, money, and a lot of aggravation![star rating=”1″]
This is the worst company I’ve ever had to deal with. They said we couldn’t downgrade a plan, so we had to create a new one. Because of that, we were due a refund, and for 4 months now I’ve been fighting with them to get it…[star rating=”1″]
The customer service is outsourced to India and absolutely horrible. We switched payment from one credit card to another hosted on paypal and they couldn’t even look up our account… They have no clue what they’re doing. [star rating=”1.5″]
This is literally the worst customer experience ever. The call center is managed from India, the wait time to get someone is usually 25-35 minutes and they are useless when you do get a person. And, if you want to get your money back for canceling … forget it. I would recommend their service to no one![star rating=”1.5″]
Yahoo web hosting sucks. I’ve used them for 8 years and all was really great, then 3 months ago they were having problems and I haven’t been able to import or publish my site ever since. Losing customers and unable to get my domain name.[star rating=”1″]
Why Choose SightGround
The three most important factors when choosing a web host are Customer service, Performance and Price, with SiteGround performing best overall in all three.
Out of 964 reviews siteground scored 4.5 out of 5 stars:
Siteground provides brilliant customer support. In fact it’s the best I’ve received from any hosting provider. There hasn’t been a single occasion where my question didn’t receive a quick response from someone who knew what they were talking about.
It only takes me seconds to receive a response from their live chat feature. Plus unlike other customer service reps, they seem to be native English speakers – which can make communication a bit easier.
According to wpsitecare.com when tested for speed with 11 other top shared hosting providers, Siteground came second – second only to inmotion hosting. However Siteground provides caching for your wordpress blog which when turned on can technically make it the fastest and it tends to perform better for higher volumes of trafic.
One of the reasons SiteGround tends to perform better for higher volumes of traffic is the caching. Turning on caching is as simple as logging into the control panel and clicking a button.
SiteGround offers much better value for money, particularly if you’re site receives higher traffic. A webhost that includes such great performance for higher volume traffic and great customer service is something that usually carries with it a higher price tag. However at £2.75/month ($3.75/month) SiteGround is well within the range of other more popular web hosts who provide much less.
