If you look up Yahoo! on Wikipedia, here is what you will find…

“In January 1994, Jerry Yang and David Filo were Electrical Engineering graduate students at Stanford University when they created a website named “David and Jerry’s Guide to the World Wide Web”.

David and Jerry’s Guide to the World Wide Web was a directory of other web sites, organized in a hierarchy, as opposed to a searchable index of pages.In April 1994, “David and Jerry’s Guide to the World Wide Web” was renamed “Yahoo!”.

The yahoo.com domain was created on January 18, 1995.”
