    Yahoo small business costumers, God must save them. ( I am one of them :()

    Got a problem in web hosting account with Yahoo, then you are gone. Write a mail to them, you will recieve a reply not less than 2 weeks. That too, the answers are the contents in thier Help section or not related to your question. Dont know what kind of people are working there and who recruits them and who recruited the recruiter?:(

    Okay, we will try to call them. Number dailed... tring....tring...tring...

    (Step 1,Lady voice)Welcome to Yahoo! If you are a small business customer dail 1, if you are a search marketing customer dail 2.

    Pressed 2, as we are small business customer.

    (Step 2,Lady voice)If you are a existing customer dail 1, if you are a new customer dail 2.

    Pressed 1, as we are existing customers.

    (Male voice)Hi, thanks for calling Yahoo!, all of our customer support executives are busy on other calls, try back later. (Lady voice) Thats all...
    Does not mean that fu*k off!

    Trying from Monday, got an idea on Friday, in step 2, pressed 2 (For new customer, but I am not).

    (Either voice) Hello sir, welcome to Yahoo! small business. What can we do for you?

    WOW.......... :eek:


    Is this not the mannerism of the worst company in the world?

    They was my first host after 3 weeks with them I had a problem with my cpanel on stats. A page would get hit then go back to zero showing not a page was looked at. They claimed the page was not looked at, I was runnnig a ppc with yahoo pages was ads was clicked i even sold products. yet the pages was not hit accordning to them it would show pages hit then2 hour's later it went down back to zero. This went on for month then they found the problem I gave them to the end od march that year to fix it they said they would. April first I closed the account and went to my current host I had that problem with yahoo 5 months they can suck a egg.

    I have used godaddy in the past. But Hostgator is the best for the price. Their support is superb.

    Their customer support is exists, but to be sorry state, it is only for new customers. When a existing customer wants to contact they wont allow you and encourages mail communication only, where we wont get replies.

    If we get the phone line in other way, the second you revealed that you are existing customer, the phone automatically disconnects.

    My laundry man, dont do that. He picks the call and says clothes are not ready... give some time.

    Thats why Yahoo! is loosing.

    Why did you buy Yahoo web hosting my friend ?

    When you buy some hosting service please do check them about their response.

    Why are you using Yahoo? I suppose the Yahoo stock falling should have warned you...

    Take my advice - do some good research.

    Many people have suggested Hostgator. Hostgator, a Dallas, TX based company, is a good place to host.
    They have great service, and LOTS of support.

    The phone number works! I called them once to do a account verification.
    The woman replied and quickly resolved the issue. Now THAT'S decent service. :)

    I do have a site hosted there. It is myscreen.us.to (not to be advertising though - I still haven't setup my site yet.).

    Dude I'm also using namecheap but I always said the opposite thing - I've tried GoDaddy and other domain registars and namecheap has the fastest change time of all of them!
