How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?

I have designed a website running in php and mysql. And I used mysqli extension instead of the normal mysql extension in php, so all my functions are now on mysqli. After developing a major part of the website, i started looking for suitable webhosts, and found that there are few that offer support for mysqli extension.

I'm not sure if I really made a mistake by preferring mysqli instead of mysql. Could you please let me know - a) whether mysqli support has to be confirmed with the host before I sign up for their web space account b) whether mysqli support will be given by default in all php 5.2+ versions c) any good (paid, but not too expensive) webhosts with reliable service offering support for mysqli extension (in shared server more, not dedicated server)

NOTE - mine is a small business, and i'm looking for a shared mode web host for now.

Thanks!

Try asking the webhost client support if they can host the website you've built. It's a good way to tell if they have a good customer support and you got nothing to lose.

Support for mysqli should be quite common as far as i know, surely it's not a mistake to use it. Lately i was looking for a provider myself, i asked for the possibility to see a phpinfo() of a server - and got it!

Recommending a hoster would not help you very much, because you will probably want a provider in your country?
