Have you did a search on yahoo or Network Solutions here ? What are you looking to do the most? If you are looking for password protected members section, almost any host control panel can do that for you. I dont know but I think that you can find better deals here than Yahoo or Network Soultions. See Network Soultion is used more like for registering Domains names like godaddy. But do a search here Im sure that you will find something much better. And remember dont sign up for the annual plans untill you know the company is doing good for you. Start with monthly then If you like their services then do the annual.

If you are just starting out and want to choose between the two, I would say Yahoo, it is user friendly and has good uptime. However they dont allow certain php / cgi scripts, so if you plan on using any check the TOS
I would suggest to search for a good small hosting company here on the WHT. I have seen posts about the big hosting companies will not be able to give you personal attention that you will need. Furthermore, you will be paying atleast some % as a premium for their brand name.
Sure you need to compare and find a good hosting provider, but it is up to you how much money you want to spend for the same services.
Best Luck !

Yahoo charges a setup fee ($25), Netsol does not. Netsol also has a 30 day money back guarantee - I don't think Yahoo does. Also, Netsol's low end starter package allows you to run PHP/CGI so unless you really need the bandwidth/storage, you could go with netsol's starter.
Also, if you do sign up for annual term, you get a free year (acquisition or renewal). If you end up exercising your 30 day money back, I think they charge you something like $9.95 for the domain if you took advantage of it.
I run a gaming site and I chose portugalnetworks.com, its a smaller hosting company with a "face" behind their customer support. Everytime I sent them an email it has been responded to almost instantly. I have never had a problem with downtime (Uptime Statistics or anything. They have great service at low prices. Check them out.
