I would like to add a point in your list
1) specialization of the hosting company : Blogs/CMS etc. I know some companies are offering good support for bloggers and some companies for CMS.

Just my two cents.

Uptime (preferrably monitored from outside)
Reasonability of prices
NO overselling

For me it's important the uptime, support response time, and their reviews (feedbacks) , and also the raport from price / services and limits offered.

Before considering buying, take a couple of days and search for reviews, and for oppinions in webhosting forums, there are 2 or 3 big ones.
