Yahoo! Small Business will no longer offer $1.99 domain name as of 11/30/2007.

The price will go back to $9.95 so we recommend that you take advantage of the offer now. After 11/30 we recommend that you purchase Yahoo! Web Hosting for $7.77 per month and get the domain name for free.

Otherwise we recommend your purchase Godaddy Domain Names at the link below: Domains

* Custom email address such as, instead of using free email services like yahoo, gmail, or hotmail.

* Potential for a larger, customized website instead of 1 page template.
