    Newbie going to start a website with hosting

    I just registered for a domain at yahoo. I'm about to sign up for web hosting at a seperate company.

    Could anyone advise if i should use email through the hosting company, or at yahoo where my domain is registered?

    I think the web hosting company's emailservice are less freaky when it comes to spam than Yahoo. Yahoo has very strange spam policies, at least for their @yahoo.com addresses.

    Definitely use the service through whichever web hosting company you sign up with. The spam filters are much better then any free email from my experience. I see maybe one spam email a month compared to 2-3 a day with my google mail account.

    Also, it's a bit more professional as well.

    Exactly what I was thinking plus, the @site.com is better

    Another quick thing to add for the future...
    NEVER get a domain from yahoo
    they are very hard to work with on a business owner standpoint because they dont have a control panel where you can do the advanced things on your own (well, if they do i couldnt find one) By advanced im talking register nameservers etc.

    Beside email, you can host a small website with your hosting plan.

    I side with just about everyone who has commented so far... there are more pros than cons when it comes to choosing your web host over yahoo for email hosting. Spam filters and professionalism are both important. Something to keep in mind is that when conducting any sort of business online, free email accounts are often denied if not frowned upon.

    I don't think I would ever choose a hosting company that used @yahoo as the business email addy.

    Sad but true. I just use host mails now for client matters, but I love other services with my Google account.

    The thing is with most hosts, depending if you're going to be on a shared server or not. Most shared server ips get blocked by isps. A very common one Comcast... They block so many ips it's hard to get mail to their users.
