Searching for a Domain

Lately, I have been searching for a web host for starting my experimental portal. I have tried various options and found Yahoo domains for small business is a good option. Yahoo provides a domain with a rent of US $10 per year, which is pretty good. I do believe that the 24 by 7 support will be there throughout the year.

The basic cost to register a domain for a year is $9.95, which includes a starter Web page, and Yahoo! offers 24/7 toll-free support. For $11.95 a month, you get a customizable, hosted Web site with 2GB of disk space and 25 e-mail accounts. We used an easy, template-based tool called Site Builder to create a site and employed precreated themes.

PC Magazine Editor's Choice rates Yahoo highly above others. However, with Findmyhosting I tried searching for an ultra-cheap web hosting service in vain. Nothing compares with Yahoo.

Also, I wanted to enquire from a small Indian company. I got a quote of US $18 per year.

Mm..I am planning to go Yahoo.
