We've narrowed our search down to Yahoo and FatCow but we're having trouble deciding which will be better to use in the long run for ease of design, professionalism, reliability and other user issues. Anyone have experience with both and can give honest feedback about which is better?

Would help if we knew what parameters you used to narrow your search down to these two providers. What was your thought process? I've never used either, but do know others who have, and don't think you'll go wrong with either - depending on your requirements.

Unfortunately I can only comment on Fatcow, and I have to say that server performance is not up there with that of (some of) their competitors.

What are you using the hosting for? That is what will determine your best choice as you need to layout your needs and find out which provider can fulfill your needs the best. Don't forget to consider your future needs as well.

I have personally used Yahoo hosting a while back, I was very impressed in the service.

Never had personal experience with either host but I have read more positive reviews on Fatcow than YAhoo.

Some of my customers have used yahoo and it seems like they have all disliked it.

FatCow oversells so I wouldn't really recommend them.

Unfortunately, I can not comment on either company because I'm not a fan of overselling so over the years I've stayed away from such companies. Best of luck!

I would recommend looking at some more unbiased hosting reviews try fatcow and yahoo then decide for yourself the most unbiased review is your own.

I am not sure I would either, esp. since I know its not even possible. No offense, but if they are your only two options, choose neither and start the search over again. There are many other places out there that do not have up front Jazz as I call it, to clutter the minds of soon to be clients with sparkly mumbo jumbo.

( that sounded so professional I know)
