I want to design my own website and get a company to host it?
Could I get a host to help me with technical problems say for example if it went down or something was not working correctly? Or do I need to take care of technical problemss? and would it be hard for me to deal with say for example my site going down? and would I be able to solve such an issue?
"Could I get a host to help me with technical problems say for example if it went down or something was not working correctly?"
If your site goes off-line it will almost certainly be a server fault, and the host will know about it - lots of other sites will be hosted on the same server. It's a very rare occurrence with good hosting companies, in fact it's so rare it's not worth worrying about.
'Something not working correctly' will almost certainly be down to you - an error in site design, or something that hasn't been uploaded to the server. You might find that your host will offer a database of commonly asked questions, but don't count on it. You'll get free help and advice here, so don't let it be a worry.
fourm member's advice is good - don't try to predict the problems - face them as they arise. Designing and publishing a first website puts you on a learning curve,but you can find the answer to more or less anything on the web - let Google and us be your friends.
If you find a good host, like LiquidWeb or BlueHost etc, they provide excellent support and will help you with a lot of things. I currently use LiquidWeb and they've been incredibly helpful in the 6 months I've used them.
