Obviously you need to be able to host your website somewhere. Most hosting companies are similar, and it’s just a matter of looking for generally what you need.
Plain html website, maybe a WordPress installation? Maybe an ASP.net e-commerce solution with SQL database?
Certainly it’s easy to find many web hosts, and if you’re like me, do some “due diligence” and search for reviews and complaints as well as commendations.
In my experience, it’s kind of like buying a computer. We all know that months after we buy something, it’s already out of date. So, we buy something that will do what we need it to do.
One of the web hosting companies I’ve usd in the past is 1&1 Web Hosting and they’ve provided a decent solid experience.
I heartily encourage you to at least check them out!
