We had a client that has a joomla site on GoDaddy and it does okay.  Yahoo Hosting was the worst to get Joomla up and going.  I would actively avoid Yahoo hosting b/c they do not give you access to your .htaccess file so any sort of SEF options becomes very difficult.  I did get sh404SEF working for a client on Yahoo hosting.
