I am looking for affordable shared hosting provider to support - ASP.Net ,Crystal Report and Office Interop word dll.
From about six months now, I'm using Shared hosting space of "asphostserver ". These guys have not been able to deploy my application properly which runs perfectly on localhost. There are issues on their server regarding Crystal Reports, Microsoft Office
Interop word dll and authentication which they haven't been able to resolve from last six months.
I have paid them hosting charges and hell lot of other charges during this time but all now seems to be a waste. Besides not being able to deploy my application successfully and wasting so much time, these guys won't even refund
Their service is so pathetic, even your high priority support tickets take about 24 - 48 hrs to be answered, for resolving the problem (which they haven't been able to do in full ) for what they have been able to - it takes them not less than a week or
some times a month. Needless to say when they fix one thing other gets some kind of problem. Even issues they fix reoccur !!!!
It seems they have some non tech or trainee profiles on their support. They have asked me to make so much changes
in my code that I could actually build another similar application!!!!
I'm building this application as a free lancer for a client of mine who is now highly pissed and needless to say this does not remain a profitable project for me (but the experience is worth it)
Would appreciate if you could please provide suggestion for some new Shared Hosting Provider that support ASP.Net + Crystal Report + Office Interop word dll..... and has a good technical support.
ASP.NET 3.5 Hosting

Sorry to hear this. Crystal report does require some kind of special permission changes on server to execute. I believe Office Interop will require MS Office to be licensed and installed on server (which is not something that is more common in shared environment).
If you don't happen to find a shaerd host matching your requirement, I'd recommend you to consider a VPS solution whereby you will be able to custom configure your hosting environment as per your requirement.

Not only in a shared environment. Office Interop Shouldn't be used (I doubt MS Office license will allow to install it on any webserver), on any webserevr. It isn't recommended nor supported by Microsoft:
"Microsoft does not currently recommend, and does not support, Automation of Microsoft Office applications from any unattended, non-interactive client application or component (including ASP, ASP.NET, DCOM, and NT Services), because Office may exhibit
unstable behavior and/or deadlock when Office is run in this environment."
Instead, a third party control need to be used, or use this free component
