I am disagree here. If you are selling icecream you do not need to have your own cows. Some people have near basement-based DCs ... And many reputable providers do not own DCs at all.

First, you must verify if it's a real company. Just do a search in the country/state/province where this company is.
Real company must be registered at the gouvernment.
After that search around the net if you can find anything positive on this provider, if they have a good support, phone numbers .....

I agree with you and i think response time, up time and there customer support is really of great importance. Also one should check user feedback as well before selecting a host.

Properly registered, age of the company, reviews on independent sites, etc. I find those are all good indicators. Definitely don't go by top 10 sites, etc. they are generally paid for advertising.

A reliable host always have nice, friendly and quick support team, so contacting them multiple times will give you an idea about their services. However, up time can be judged only by signing up and using their services.

I am sure that customer hosting reviews will help you to get a clear picture of the host you are planning to deal with.

And an unreliable web host is worth next to nothing IMO. From my experience web hosting companies generally provide overall good service or bad.

I agreed with you and mostly web hosting companies leasing rackspace in data center, which is owned by other companies. But it doesn't sounds those companies aren't reliable. The most important thing you want to know is, they have a physical access to your servers or not. Also they must have a good SLA in place with data center to replace hardware equipment if it's essential.

You can google some of the web hosts that you are thinking of and get their reviews.
