I use Fasthosts and must admit have not had any problems with their Tech Support, although I have not had call to use them very much.
Of course, I do not know which choice of server or OS you have made, but I went for a dedicated server with their Centos offering (it’s pretty much a free version of Redhat). Annoyingly they have customised the setup a little, mainly to accommodate their Matrix control panel. but no matter, the problems it creates are easily overcome.
My main point however is, seeing as I have root access to the server , it has been a trivial matter to update or add, Apache, PHP, mcrypt and mhash originally supplied on the server.
If you wish to go down this route then send me a PM and I will give you information on how it can be accomplished.
