The Yahoo! Premier Hosting Plan gives you unlimited space and data transfer, plus a domain with free private registration. However, though you get unlimited site pages, you only get support for one domain (hopefully they will change this policy soon). If you only need one site for your business, this is fine. However, if you need to host multiple separate domains, you probably want to find a different hosting package.
There are a number of pluses for business site owners:
SpamGuard Plus helps to get rid of annoying bulk email marketing messages.
You get Multilingual Text Support to help your business site market worldwide.
One cool feature is the inclusion of a Yahoo! map and driving directions to help locate your business. This is a great feature if you have a local business site and need to attract more customers in your area.
As you might expect, this Yahoo! hosting plan offers plenty of SEO tools including automatic site submission to the major search engines, plus many reports including a search engine ranking tracker.
Yahoo! Small Business Hosting also features redundant, geographically distributed data centers to help keep your data safe.
