They decided to make some changes to their website program and WIPE OUT MY ENTIRE WEBSITE so I have to build a whole new one, Wow Thanks!!! That's what I get for sticking with Yahoo Small Business for 20 years? What do you do to people who haven't been loyal and paid you 20 bucks a month for the last 20 years? Nice kick in the teeth, right? Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Actually I used to like it, but recently I discover a Huge brench of security on this emails accounts Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I receive an Spoofing email on saturday 18th at 3:53am (GMT-5), by the 9am I change my password, using the control panel, but it was surprinsing for me to notice that my email account on my mobile app (Android OS) is still working, has not request for the new password, it is not possible to sign out from previus devices; think about this, I somebody gets my password and use this credentials to login, no matter if I change my password, my paid email account will be always accesible with the old credentials if this person use my credentials on a third party email app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Yahoo Small Business helps us on every level through calls, the website and through in-software instructions. They provide just about all of the needs that we have in regards to creating an online presence and make it work best for us and our particular services. Yahoo Small Business doesn't just display a bunch of products that we go in and buy, they guide us through the process and help us understand why certain things may or may not be needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think that having the type of service that Yahoo Small Business provides can be great for newer companies in the beginning stages of web development, but YSB doesn't have as diverse a range of products as standard web hosting companies and other business product companies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would say that Yahoo Small Business is suitable for new companies that don't want to make mistakes about registrations and also have all of the web features they need to start a successful website and have a viable internet marketing strategy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We don't have to focus too much on the fine technical and administrative details involved with developing an online experience for our customers. Yahoo Small Business has helpful tools that can move us step-by-step through all of our hosting product and registration requirements. The support staff at Yahoo Small Business does a good job at explaining things in a way that anyone can understand. We were able to get up and running with all of our services within a few days. We probably could have been online faster if we weren't as strict about our designs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Yahoo small business's email system itself is well designed. Multitasking is easy with an easy to understand tab system, emails can be easily sorted into folder for reference later or searched. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Lots of downtime, sub-par to poor customer service depending on the representative you get. Customer service is outsourced overseas. Disappointing consistency. Inability to edit or remove web pages from the previous web building system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Honestly I wouldn't recommend this service to run your small web business off of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to keep my workflow organized with tabs is excellent - typically I'm having to juggle multiple conversations and orders at once, but with the clearly labeled tabs this is no problem. The web service has been sufficient, I was easily able to add new pages to the site when we changed our landing page, however pages made on the old system from several years ago are inaccessible.

What do you like best?

It helps in reaching out and contacting the clients in a faster and efficient manner. It also provides an separate Business mail for the organisation in which i am working in, making our enterprise also to be noted by our clients. It aslo helps to get connected along with the Hubspot and the Dropbox, by which it is very much compatible and efficient in nature. It helps in sending bulk email, to the different users and the interlinked contacts in a single click. It helps in creating a separate identity our organisation. It notifies the user if any of mail is not able to be send and if the other end user email is a invalid one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, there is an delay in forwarding and the replying to the mails that are being sent out. It even at some times crashes and making it uncomfortable from the user end to use it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend to others, since it is very much simple similar to the gmail and the yahoo mail, and it took only simple procedure to open up an business account. It helps us to create a separate business mail for our organisation. It can be integrated with any of the software, unlike the other business mails. It can be interfaced with Hub-spot CRM, Dropbox and Trello. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps me to connect with my team and also along with all of my pupil in the organisation. It helps me to send mail and important documents, MOU and Proposals to my clients via Yahoo Small Business. Since here the yahoo small business in interfaced with the Hubspot, i woud get mails and notifications of my task directly as a mail, by which i would be reminded of all my tasks and Demos to be carried out.It also helps me to store some of my documents and pics in the folders.

What do you like best?

The possibilities of offering our products and services through the web have been favored thanks to the trust we had in Yahoo Small Business. Initially, it was an expectation of the benefits that we could obtain, however, the creation of our website was very simple, the whole process was carried out by hand, we created our website with a very attractive design that attracts a lot of attention which is a advantage since the first image enhances and blows the imagination of the clientele towards the positive opinions towards the company, for that reason we have had a great acceptance and an immense escalation, to the point that the sales have increased. We have guaranteed security towards the products we offer, since from the beginning we acquired a Yahoo Small SSL certificate. As our online business has grown, we keep in constant activity to incorporate emails from new users and a large number of new products, doing so in an unlimited way. The times that we have needed technical support have answered us in real time and without setbacks. We are pleased with the acquisition, which has given us the ease of choosing the option that best adapted to our payment possibilities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The host has been functional and we have not had any inconvenience, however, it could be improved with tools with greater applicability and updated for companies with high demands, in this sense we refer to the need to activate with more advanced hosts such as the cloud, which It provides the user with greater capacity in their requirements on the web. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to grow your company, we recommend using Yahoo Small Business which is a tool that has many facilities and is easy to use, but start with the test plan so you know which is the best option for your business Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While we had not acquired the Yahoo small business, we remained low in the face of the clientele, we needed a tool that would make us more credible, feasible, visible with unlimited opportunities to offer our products, so we did it with Yahoo Small Business.

I love how easy yahoo small business makes their website navigation especially for an entrepreneur who might not have the most web experience. Their phone support is superb as well as their customer service for helping me launch a website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I actually really enjoy Yahoo Small business, I don't have other services to compare it to as Yahoo SB is the first I have used for this purpose. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it, I've had a great experience using it, I no longer use it as my company has shuttered but if it had not, I would still utilize this service. I have seen other competitors like GoDaddy and other sites and while they seem efficient too, Yahoo Small Business was very user friendly, their customer service was stellar and the pricing was very realistic. This is something that I wouldn't be able to do alone so technical assistance over the phone and in chat were very useful for me. Other than yahoo e-mail, this is the primary/main Yahoo software/application I have used. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

you used to be able to host both business email and a website through yahoo small biz. it was great, back when yahoo was "the" only email service other than ISP versions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The service then became expensive and somewhat unreliable. in addition, once other applications (both desktop and hand held/iphone) became available to the general public, there was no need to use the paid email from yahoo small business (to remove ads), as the IMAP/POP versions that utilized the same log in as the yahoo app were able to deliver ad free email. yahoo, IMO, lost their competitive advantage.
