There are lots of hosting providers available, still many of them are resellers who have minimal resources, especially in terms of support. A good way to distinguish them is the option to contact the company over the telephone. The level of support that you can get via this method of communication may vary depending on the provider - some provide dedicated phone support, various others offer basic and customer support only because some matters are more time-consuming and it would be quicker to be resolved through a trouble ticket, especially when the issue has to be escalated. Nonetheless, it's good to find that you can always get in touch with your website hosting supplier as there are countless small-scale issues that can be managed without difficulty and in a timely manner with a phone call, not mentioning that you'll be able to get additional information for the services even before you become a customer.
