Yahoo Small Business Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Yahoo Small Business's features:

Norzihan I.

Used to be good email provider

2021-01-28

Yahoo email used to be the leading company in email business, but lately they just seem can't keeping up with modern solutions needs and still not offering new features to help easing business related work and needs. Overall, this still can be considered good email service for personal use.

Pros

Yahoo also has mobile application, and everything can be manage and monitored by my phone.

Cons

There are not much option offered by the business email, unlike Gmail that are offering tons of feature that are coming with its email service. The design layout is outdated and not too user friendly, and the website is slow to open the email.

Yahoo Small Business - Buyer Beware

2019-10-15

Yahoo, at the time, was a trusted name in email and internet search. The monthly pricing was was low-to-average, and the ability to use your company email via the Yahoo webmail portal was a nice "bonus".

Pros

Integration with Yahoo Webmail Platform; Ability to sync to Yahoo accounts; Low overall cost

Cons

Lack of administrator tools (ie: inability to access employee email accounts, reset user passwords, etc.); Sub-par security; Spam emails coming from Yahoo itself; slow loading times on Yahoo-hosted websites

Goof option for hosting business email

2021-02-20

I used to have a very good experience choosing Yahoo Small Business as my email hosting and using the website builder to build my own website, but the service is not on the par anymore and I had to switch to other service provider.

Pros

The website builder has a very good template and drag and drop feature to adding widget to the website.

Cons

I like using Yahoo as my email service hosting, but the website is very slow to loading the resource and can takes minute to finish loading the email website. There is also no cloud storage provided to store my archived email online and need to use other cloud storage service to do it.

Yahoo review

2020-05-21

My experience has been short with yahoo and I have switched over to google and gmail platforms. These are much more user friendly and consistent, and also provide other features like google drive and google meet that seem much more user friendly than Yahoo.

Pros

The product is easy to use in the ability to search quickly and find all that I need to know whether that be business websites, fields, or training facilities.

Cons

Many times, I have needed to scroll to the second or third page when I am searching for a quite uncommon yahoo search that you think would pop up on the first try.

web page for startup entrepreneur

2021-01-28

It's a user friendly email service and alright if you're a beginner with starting a web page for a new business.

Pros

Appreciated how there is SSL certificate to protect me and my customers' data. There were plenty of backup and restore tools if something went wrong.

Cons

It got kind of pricey and didn't have diverse range of products compared to other standard web hosting companies. Inability to edit or remove web pages from the previous web building system. It didn't have enough tutorials and just had instructions to read.

Lots of features for low cost

2020-09-01

Pros

We did not have a lot of extra money to spend on fancy business software upon startup. Our original plan was to use this until we could afford a different program. We have stayed with this platform as it offers everything we need at a fraction of the cost of other programs. We enjoy the functionality and ease of using it. It is very user friendly. We have some older members of our team who are not very computer savvy and I only had to walk them through this once. Anyone on our team has the ability to upload and edit the site. Yahoo! small business makes that a breeze.

Cons

We do have to pay for a billing software separately and I wish we could link them to read the data from one another, but otherwise this is great.

Why you need to make the switch to Yahoo Small Business

2020-04-23

Overall I've had a great experience with Yahoo. I've only been using the software for about a year, but the organization and functionality is amazing! 10/10 using this software

Pros

It works very quickly and efficiently and it is very helpful when trying to get work accomplished. The interface design has been done very well and makes it easy for individuals of all ages to use.

Cons

The only con I have about this software is maybe the number of applications that it offers along with the software. Maybe a few more applications like FaceTime or a few other things could be added but other than that I really don't have any cons about this software.

Is it really safe?

2021-03-31

Despite the service is good in overall, the consideration for people before using this service is more of a security reason. They must have been improved and upgraded their security by now though.

Pros

I'm familiar with this service provider and it's old interface.

Cons

I tried the free version one long time ago. In fact, I got my password 2x hacked.
