Link to a forum : Anyone tried Yahoo Domains?

First comment from this forum :

07-21-2006(22 posts)

I was wondering whether anyone here has tried registering with Yahoo domains? They aren't really overpriced, and give the first year at yahoo for $2 or $3... this seems like a good idea if you want to test traffic for a year (unless you have to agree to renew the domain).

Has anyone ever tried yahoo domains? Is it a good deal or not? What is the Yahoo support like?"

Link to a forum : Yahoo! Domain $4.98! Catch?

First comment from this forum :

"EDIT: 2/2/05.

Dear friends,
I started this thread last month to check if there was a catch in Yahoo's domain deal.

Here was my query on this thread:
Yahoo! charges you $4.98 to register your domain. Good for one year.
Sounds like a great deal.
I'm thinking about registering here.
Is there a catch that anybody can advise me about before I do so?


Finding no response to this query, I tried a little more research, and found nothing. Therefore, I went ahead and registered.

Ever since then, I experienced hours upon hours of aggravating nightmarish living hell on earth.
I eventually created a website about my entire horrible experience:

Yahoo is a scam artist. There are many websites out there warning users to stay away from them. I'm only sorry I never saw them sooner.
Please Please Please stay away from Yahoo!

Yahoo attaches recurring automatic carges to your credit card. To some this may not matter, but to any with a graduate level education in Business Administration and Marketing, this is elementary reperatory straegy. Popularized first by Colombia House, and later by America Online. To some, this may still not matter, but I advise you to consider the consequences of these types of deals. I have fallen prey to them more than too many times. Yahoo is no exception. Please do everything you can to stay away from Yahoo and any company that would use such forms of marketing practices.

Your friend,

Link to a forum : Anyone have experience with a Yahoo! Domain?

First comment from this forum :

" Hiya,

Here's the situation. A client owns a domain name purchased through yahoo! (It's one of those "register your domain for e-mail deals - $35 a year plan). You can easily have the domain redirect to any site.

Now, we've built a web site, set up the mail server and all of that jazz and I need to update the nameservers so it switches over. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how. The client DOES own the domain and it's registered through some registrar in Australia. When I go there, it says I need a key, but when I ask for that key, it says I've got to get it from the reseller who sold me the domain.

So, I've got my client's login info and I'm going around yahoo and I can't find diddly-squat on how to do it (not even a support e-mail address!). Does anyone have any expoerience with managing a domain registered with yahoo?

Link to a forum : Anyone successfully hosting Yahoo domain elsewhere?

First comment from this forum :

" I have a domain registered with Yahoo - $2.97 a year was a great deal - so I locked it in for 3 years for what most others were charging for one. I put in the DH name servers in the Yahoo control panel and I was able to access the site and upload stuff to it with Transmit to the DH servers. So far, so good.

Now I got to upload some more and it gives me a password error in Transmit. I try to go to the domain using Camino and get the Yahoo "under construction" page.

I double checked in the Yahoo control panel and the DH name servers are still listed, but when I try to access the site I still get the Yahoo place holder page.

I want to host the site at DreamHost and I thought it was simply a matter of changing name servers like DH describes, but for some reason Yahoo keeps flipping me back to their "under construction" page.

I did a Google search and I am not the only one with this problem, but no one seems to have a solution. Since the domain is new, I cannot transfer it to DH yet. Yes, I can forward the domain, but I signed up to have Yahoo register my domain and that's all I want them to do.

Any ideas?"

Link to a forum : Yahoo Domain Name Email Problem

First comment from this forum :

" I have two yahoo accounts set up on my iPhone.
1. Traditional Yahoo account:
2. Yahoo Domain Name account:

I receive email and can view folders. I can send from the traditional Yahoo account just fine. I use to be able to send from the Domain Name account, but I noticed a few days ago that when I send from the Domain Name account, it actually is being sent by my traditional yahoo account, even though I am replying or emailing from my domain name account.

I think this was working about 1 week ago. The only change I have noticed that could have cause this, is my Yahoo Domain Name account recently switched over to the New Yahoo Mail (no longer the Beta).

Has anyone experienced this? Any ideas on how to get my Yahoo Domain Name email to send from that email address? Thanks in advance."

Link to a forum : How to change nameservers for a Yahoo Domain

First comment from this forum :

"Just had a heck of a time doing this for a customer so thought it might be handy for people with domains registered at Yahoo and are trying to point them at another web host.

Go to:
Select 'Manage My Domains' from the top left of screen
then 'View Registry Key' towards the center of screen.

At the bottom of the resulting screen you'll fine the following:
INWW Registry Key: ********

This code (though Yahoo doesn't tell their customers), is a registry key for Internet Names Worldwide.
is where you edit the nameservers themselves. Log in using the domain name itself and that registry key listed above.

Once inside the control panel, select 'Delegation Details', and then update the Primary and Secondary Nameservers (Hostnames) as required.

Hit the 'Submit' button and you're done."

Link to a forum : Yahoo domain name registration, be careful, you may loose your domain name

First comment from this forum :

"This happened to me last year:

I registed a domain name with yahoo. I paid for 5 years.

After sometime, I bought a hosting plan from yahoo. Since I didn't like the hosting plan, I cancelled the plan.

Know what, yahoo cancelled my domain name also! I lost a domain name for which I had paid for 5 years.

Talked, Shouted, Cried - with yahoo support people! No use! Domain name remained cancelled! I had to pay again to get back the domain.

(Their stupid logic: They call a hosting plan as an upgrade of the domain plan. When you buy hosting, you upgrade domain name. So when you cancel hosting plan later, according to them, you cancel not only the hosting plan, but also the domain name associated with it)

Didn't expect such an idotic logic from a company like Yahoo."

Article : How to Get a Cheap Yahoo Domain Name

By John C Alzza

Once you have decided that you want to have your own website on the internet its important that you choose a yahoo domain name that accurately represents what you plan to use it for and what extra features you need to get the most out of it.

With over 80 million registered domains on the internet its becoming harder and harder to find relevant Yahoo domain names that are available which are related to the topic you want to target, especially for .com Domain names which are by far the most popular. For this reason there are now many other types of Yahoo domain names which you can choose from such as .net and .info.

The first thing you will need to do is visit a website such as Yahoo and start searching for available .com Domain names using the search feature. As most names are already taken you will probably need to use three or more words to find one that is available (you can also use hyphens between each word to find available names).

Because people are familiar with .com domains you should start searching for them first but its not absolutely necessary and you can find a much shorter Name using a different extension such as .net or .info. The extension of your Yahoo domain will not effect the performance of your website or How well it operates.

If you want to generate free traffic from the search engines and achieve top rankings you should try to use keywords that you want to target in your Domain name. So if you want to start a website about losing weight you should try to use words like "weight loss" or "diet" in the Domain name to help your rankings in the search engines for those keywords.

Just having a popular keyword in your Yahoo domain Name is not enough to achieve top rankings but it will help the search engines identify what your website is about so its important that you include at least one keyword that relates to the market you want to target if you want to generate free traffic in the future.

When you have found a yahoo Domain name for your website you should seriously consider adding the private registration option to your order. This will protect your Domain from unwanted attention by hiding your personal details such as your email address which could be collected by spammers.

After you have purchased a yahoo Domain name you will need to find a website hosting plan that suits your needs and meets your requirements depending on How much disk space and data transfer you need. Once you have a hosting account you can set up your website and have it up and running within a matter of hours.

PC Magazine says : “Domain registration through Yahoo! Small Business is the easiest.”

What Do You Thing About Yahoo Domain Service ? Please comment.

What Is a Yahoo Domain?

The well-known Internet portal Yahoo! has joined the domain name business. The company now offers domain name registration services through its Yahoo! Small Business division. This sector of Yahoo is devoted to helping entrepreneurs get their businesses up and running by providing assistance like recruiting services, marketing tools and web hosting. The next reasonable step is to offer branded Yahoo domain registration. It’s another tool which will help business establish an online presence.

PC Magazine reviewed Yahoo Domains and gave it the highly-coveted Editor’s Choice Award. The published review states that “domain registration through Yahoo! Small Business is the easiest.� The statement reflects the level of service that one receives through a Yahoo Domain. It offers great features like domain forwarding, email forwarding, control panel with DNS management, and the most popular top-level domains. Knowledgeable customer service is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and the call is toll-free. In addition to this, one to five-year registration plans are available.

Yahoo! Domains also makes upgrading very easy for those who want to expand to other Yahoo! services. Customers may upgrade to receive a personal custom mailbox or business mail package which reflects the domain name. Users may also transfer their Yahoo! domain from another web host to Yahoo! Web Hosting. If the customer needs help creating an online store, they may summon the help of Merchant Solutions which is a program that will help them manage online sales.

PC Magazine said that a Yahoo Domain was the easiest. It is quite possible to claim that the service is one of the cheapest. It offers all of the aforementioned features for only $4.98 per year at the time of this writing. With so many wonderful features at such a low price, it is hard to overlook an offer like this one.
