You can find lots of shared hosting providers out there, still many of them are resellers that have minimal resources, especially when it comes to support. A good way to distinguish them is the option to get in touch with the company over the phone. The level of support that you can have via this channel of communication varies based on the provider - several of them offer expert phone support, various others offer general and customer support only because some matters are more time-consuming and it's much easier to be resolved with a ticket, particularly if the situation needs to be escalated. Still, it's good to know that you could always reach your web hosting provider because there're plenty of small-scale matters that can be managed efficiently and in a very timely manner through a telephone call, not mentioning that you can get additional info about the services even before you become a client.
