Questions you may have

What does the Verizon deal mean for my business?

We recently announced that Verizon will acquire Yahoo's operating business. This deal is expected to close in Q1 2017, so right now everything remains the same, and your Yahoo Small Business team is unchanged.

Please stay tuned for further announcements, and thank you for being a part of Yahoo Small Business!

Why do I see luminate.com for some site pages and my Control Panel?

Long story, short: We had to move all sites and servers off of the Yahoo domain as part of the previously planned spin preparations. At the time, luminate.com was our planned product brand. You may see the luminate.com domain used for some time.

Will prices for my services remain the same?

We do not have plans to change the prices for our products and services in association with the rebrand.

Since Aabaco Small Business is still a part of Yahoo, will my invoices and renewals come from Yahoo or Aabaco Small Business?

We are moving away from Aabaco Small Business gradually. You may still see Aabaco Small Business on your invoices until we complete this change.

How does this impact my Business Mail accounts?

Business Mail will continue to be powered by Yahoo Mail. The functionality you have today will either remain the same or see improvements. You will have access to past emails sent and retain your sub-account email addresses as you have already set them up. We also anticipate no changes to the way you access your business email mailboxes.

Will SiteBuilder and/or Site Solution be part of the ongoing offerings?

There are no planned changes for Yahoo SiteBuilder or Site Solution associated with the rebrand.

If you are a SiteBuilder user, you need to download a new version of SiteBuilder starting November 15, 2015. This new version is available here.
