That's certainly true but on the other hand I've had cheap hosting 
vendors flake out in various ways, which sometimes includes their 
support, which I thought was good when I signed up (and maybe it was), 
flaking out as well.  Another way I've had them flake out is just go 
poof and disappear 100%.  Support lines disconnected and everything.

Certainly if you're doing some kind of production quality hosting you 
can keep up on the vendor and make sure their support is still good, or 
etc.  Or you can pay big $$ for a top tier vendor.  But if you're 
looking for something cheap that doesn't require a lot of attention to 
maintenance, that kind of defeats the purpose.

So both ways have their issues.
