Yahoo! Will Lock You in and Knock You Out

Is Yahoo Dead? I Don't Think So. Who Else With This Scale Can Be Neutral? - John Battelle's Searchblog

I will never trust Yahoo! again after they increase the price of my previously registered domains from $9.95 to $34.95 per year. No, the $9.95 was not an introductory offer, but they wrote the contract to allow price increases. Since that time I have registered about 10 domains through Google and their partners ( and I hope they don't bite me.

I repeat. Yahoo! is not to be trusted so all they can do is establish themselves as equally exploitative to all.


  1. What happened to the whole Moore's law thing, where bandwidth, storage, etc., are supposed to halve in price every six months?

  2. Thanks for providing the first comment! Yes, that added insult to injury for me. Desperate companies are dangerous as are desperate people, as should often be avoided.
