I have paid a hosting service that didn't work because it was very difficult to login, load, and customize my pages. I'll appreciate if someone recommends
me a good hosting company which service is reliable and easy to use.

Look for a host in the country in which you are trading. That way you don't loose business when an earthquake snaps an trans oceanic comms cable (that happens regularly). It is also a lot easier to get issues resolved if you are in the same time zone. You might raise a query at 8am but if it is only midnight at your web host you could loose a days business before getting an answer.
In any case, what might be a good hosting company today could become a basket case tomorrow - I have seen it happen, where a company takeover or change of management has led to a sharp decline in service as key staff leave to go elsewhere,
My advice is to work out your requirements and research using your favourite search engine. Many hosting companies will have a user forum that can give an indication of customer satisfaction levels.
Many ISPs also provide bundled webspace where you could point your domains.
Have you checked yours?
the Webmaster General forum Charter [webmasterworld.com] prohibits discussion about specific hosting providers.
we have those exact threads on WebmasterWorld but they are only allowed in the Webhosting Issues and Options forum [webmasterworld.com], which is only available to WebmasterWorld subscribers [webmasterworld.com].
At the bottom end of the scale I would look for a webhost that has the C panel system with the "fantastico" package that gives you a number of one click install programs you can use. This will require you to learn some coding to best use it.
At the other, pay someone to create a website for you and that you know have to simply add new content to.
When comparing hosts i'd recommend making sure you get .htaccess these days too, software applications tend to have options to put it to good use for SEO etc.
