Worst web host in existence
Here is a partial list of features Yahoo
DOESN"T support that every other commercial
(and more than a few FREE web hosts) has
supported for years:
* no url rewriting (.htaccess). If you want to
install WordPress, Joomla, Drupal then get
used to urls like http://mysite.com/index.php?
page=page-title§ion=blog. If you
reorganize your site, all your links will
* no editing MIME types. MIME type is by file
extension and file extension only.
* your account root is your document root. So
there is no way of keeping files securely on
the server. Anything you upload must be web-
* database server goes down constantly. With
my test Drupal install, requests timed out
more often than not. Yahoo's MySQL server
cannot be relied upon.
* poor network access. I had a site that was
mirroring content from one of my other sites.
Yahoo blocked fetching from the remote site (I
tested by fetching another site). No one at
Yahoo knows anything about it.
In short GO ELSEWHERE!
