Reactivate Yahoo Small Business account

When you cancel your account, you lose access to your control panels, website files, and emails. If you change your mind, it's easy to get started with a new account.

Web Hosting and Merchant Solutions

If your Web Hosting or Merchant Solutions account has been closed for 30 or fewer days, and your domain hasn't expired, you can reactivate your account. Sign up for a new Web Hosting or Merchant Solutions plan using the Yahoo ID and domain associated with your original plan.

When you reactivate your account, you'll regain access to your control panels and begin a new billing cycle, with a new billing date. Please note, however, that we can't recover any email messages previously stored in your account, and your website and store files could be gone.

Reactivate Web Hosting or Merchant Solutions account

  1. Go to the Yahoo Small Business reactivation page.
  2. Enter the domain name you used with your original plan.
  3. Complete the sign-up process to activate your service.
  4. Make sure your domain is hosted at Yahoo.

When you complete the sign-up process, your service will be reactivated immediately. Please allow up to 72 hours for your website to show up on the Internet.

Domains and Business Email

Domains and Business Email accounts that were closed can be reactivated by signing up for a new account. If your domain expired and someone else claimed it, you'll need to register a new domain.

 Not sure if your domain expired? Run a WHOIS search to see if it's still registered.

Please be aware that we can't recover emails or other data previously associated with your account, including your starter web page and any custom domain settings.
