Yahoo! Web Hosting services include a built-in Wordpress installer. You can install additional plug-ins, whether they are premium or self-developed. As long as the plug-ins do not require modifying php.ini or .htaccess they should work. You can also use a custom install of Wordpress if you are comfortable doing so.

None of our services are contract based, and you can cancel them at any time if you are dissatisfied. The plans available provide you with a discounted rate if you pay for more in advance but do not lock you into any contract or service term.

If you use selfhosted version of Wordpress you can use any plugin. I have never used yahoo, but I changed many hosting providers for my WP sites and didn't have any limitation concerning plugins or themes.

If you sign up for x period, you can't cancel it before contract ends. You will be billed for a full term. However, many hosting providers offer money back guarantee during first month, so you will be allowed to cancel your order within those 30 days.

You can check out HostGator. They give 45 days money back guarantee. You can use these HostGator coupon codes to get discount:
1CENT2012HG - get 1st month for 1 cent (if you pay monthly);
25LESSIN2012 - get 25% discount (note that default code SPRING gives only 20% discount).

Yahoo is a great website. But I am not sure whether they are a good hosting service. There are quite a few professional wordpress hosting services out there. Explore them.

Hosting services with UK/US support are considered to be the best.
