Yahoo offers free hosting to small businesses

Yahoo is giving away Web page hosting services to small businesses in a bid to bolster its search and related advertising business.

The Internet company on Wednesday introduced a new service that lets any small business sign up for a free Web page to appear in Yahoo's local directory. The move will help otherwise unwired small businesses come online, said Paul Levine, Yahoo's general manager of local services, as well as help consumers find more local information.
