On June 10, 2022, Verizon’s Small Business Essentials (formerly Yahoo Small Business) was acquired by Infinite Computer Solutions. It is being rebranded as Turbify.
While the "small business" has been dropped from the name, rest assured that Small Business is still a primary focus. Turbify has a refreshing customer-centric business model that is focusing on improving the existing technology and meeting merchant's needs.
As part of the transition and rebranding to Turbify, the team has been hard at work moving away from all Yahoo assets and properties. The next step is to move away from all Yahoo-owned domains.
The Turbify team will automatically update any references they can from their end. However, any Yahoo Stores that have been customized by the owners or developers will need to make some manual changes.

How Sequoia Can Help
Why do we manually update URLs instead of using code?
Using an RTML template that will filter your code and replace instances of the old URLs with the new URLs on the fly is a dynamic change instead of a permanent one. This means the template runs each time your page is generated. That can affect your store editor speed and publish times.
Programmatically changing URLs with other methods can lead to redirects. Redirects can have an effect on your live site's page speed and rankings.
While it would make our job easier to use these methods, manually replacing your URLs with the correct ones is the best practice and what's best for your store performance.
