You will find that it is small and mid sized hosts that outsource as they dont have large offices and the funds to hire their own staff.

Large hosts will have big offices and a bank of their own staff on their own payroll as they can afford this, but as Artashes says these host all you are to them is $$ as they have thousands of clients, so you hold little value to them as a person.

No one can guarantee of having quality for years. But you have to trust any of these companies. You can check the long time reviews of a company. You can search for their stability. Forums like Hosting Discussion are the best source to judge a hosting company as I think.

According to this topic on reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/Hosting/com...ting_provider/) the main quality of hosting provider are:
  • Stability
  • Time on market
  • Cost
  • Competitive hardware,
  • Responsive tech support
and a lot of others.
Try to browse Internet resources and find reviews of different providers. Also a lot of providers can give you a free test.
And the main advice I can give you - qualitative hosting worth its cost.

very hard to say it is oversold or not as 'how many clients are assigned to each server' will not give you that answer as

lets say the host has 500 clients on a server then until you know the actual size of the server you cannot say they have oversold the server i.e. if they have these on an 80GB server then yes it will be oversold, but if these are on a 10,000GB server then they wont be oversold

at the end of the day, you need to do your research and homework. Also you need to look at your own busness and decide how will you grow and will your hosting vendor provide you the solutions you will need in the future. Are they only shared hosting or do they offer everything, cloud, VPS, etc. Do they offer things you do not need today, but might need in a 1 year, 3 years

To maintain a good & long relationship with a server hosting provider, it is extremely important to research about it. Research should be done such that it satisfys business requirements.
When it comes to hosting, see that the server provider gives better server uptime. Server uptime should be nearly 99.995% to ensure business productivity. Also, see to that technical support is provided by them round the clock. This will ensure that any server related issues are solved instantly.
Server hosting services provided should be standard. Vps hosting,dedicated server hosting,cloud server hosting & colocation services should be provided.
These are some of the requirements which you should check & have before you associate with any hosting provider.

It will all depend on your decision. For me, I would seek out to reach small enterprises who are able to provide something as good as the large enterprise. As with large enterprises, it would mean that they would not have the ability to give you a response as quick as the small enterprises do.

It is not relevant here but to compare large enterprises like Samsung, had to give them a call every single time to work on my issue and it's still not resolved.

Just my 0.02 cents, you do not have to heed my advice!

There is an immense number of companies offering cloud hosting services so it becomes sometimes difficult to choose the perfect one for your business and for this, you need to go with the following guidelines which really help you in selecting the best provider:
1. Their Pricing structure of your
2. Enjoy the trial period of the provider
3. Check their technical support
4. Check the reviews of the provider
5. Availability of Add-ons

Beyond finding which web hosts are out there, it's a matter of digging through different plans, comparing inclusions, and checking customer reviews.

Largest hosts are more likely to be bought out.

I would stay away from them and small hosts.

I would also always go with a hosting company that you know operates their own equipment / network. Stay away from resellers ..

Give some time to jazz something and let track with simultaneous problem discussion and then just feel what is time of response for your problem If their response time. I think this is best way to jazz any company is this work or not.

Reliable customer service is a must for your web hosting company. If something goes wrong with your website (and itís practically a guarantee that something will), youíll need a host that can handle the issue right away, so youíre not stuck with a non-functioning website thatís losing you business and harming your reputation.
Look for a hosting company that offers 24/7 support by phone, email and live chat. Make sure to test the support features before committing to a web hosting contract, and ensure that they suit your needs.

depends on what is wrong with your website if they host will help as a host will help with server side issues only, if you install an incompatible plugin etc that breaks your site then that is your problem to fix.

24/7 support does not guarantee someone in person will be able to help as that just stated you have some support option 24/7. this could be a FAQ/Knowledgebase that is available 24/7.

24/7 Live support is when they guarantee someone in person is their to help
