It seems like just a few days ago when we announced Movable Type on Yahoo! Web Hosting. Understandably, lots of folks asked for WordPress support. Luckily, Matt and the hosting folks have been busy.

  • 33% off the monthly price for the first six months, and the setup fee is waived

24/7 free phone support for MySQL? :) Does it include performance tuning? :) (I think not - is probably only Wordpress support)

When does LiveJournal codebase hosting arrive, with it's nice support for viewer access controls? :)

MediaWiki? :)

(I wouldn't use it - the TOS blocks too much legitimate content, like much foreign policy discussion.)

Nice move. :)

is there support for hosting 168,000 spam articles in order to game Google's Adsense?

I'd use Yahoo webhosting (again) in a heartbeat, if only Yahoo! would allow more than one domain per account. Only allowing one domain per account is ridiculous -- particularly for folks who have multiple domains that don't get a lot of traffic.

You can have multiple domains on an account, last I checked.

Jeremy, this is great news. Still waiting to hear back from the hosting team on whether this solution will work for b5's needs. I'd love it if it did :)

There is starting to be a run of people making comments who have the first name Jeremy. So now I am worried that the box that say's:

"Jeremy's first name (required)"

means you have to *have* Jeremy as a first name, not just type it in!

I am now Jeremy Oschler. I have been assimilated.

Sounds great! If only Yahoo customer care would actually become capable of answering a simple question about it :-) (For reference:

That's a ridiculous amount of B/W and space for cheap.

I'll have to check on that, then. I used to use Yahoo webhosting, and was told, flat out, that you would have to have additional accounts for each domain. This was more than a year ago, so maybe it's changed.

A little bit to me, in China, we can not visit the sites hosted in Yahoo!
