I want to host my online store. Please tell me best web host. I am thinking of godaddy or 1and1. How are they both? Is there any better web host? I am looking for shared hosting in starting with good features like SSL too.
There are many reviews of both of those companies on this forum if you do a serch then I am sure you will find them.
The first thing you need to do is make a list of what your requirements are (Disk Space, Bandwidth etc) then add half again. If it comes out that you will require alot of disk space you may want to consider going for a VPS/Reseller Package.
Always check the reviews on the company you do go with.
It may happen that in shared hosting our site will be hosted with any black listed website. Then how would we know where the web host has hosted our website? Can they provide us information about how our website is hosted, like what others are hosted on it, are there any black listed or not, is there enough space between all?

As they would be providing the information to you (if you managed to get it) and they are in the business to attract customers a question you should be asking your self is can you trust the information ?
Some Oversell and some wouldn't I would recommend you go with a company who has limits on it's package and keep away from the oversellers. If you need to look in the Offers part of the forum and see what the offerings are in there.
I have not much large space, say 300-500 Mb space, i dont know exact..but we can assume it
I want medium or affordable budget and not much
I prefer quality
If that is the case, let me give you an idea on this.
Lets say your budget is about $5 a month.
A host provides you with 300GB space and 3000GB bandwidth, while another provide you with 120GB space 1200GB bandwidth.
Who will you go with?
I believe most will take the former, as you get more from it.
However, do you think you can use all of it?
Most host will limit your cpu usage and ram so that you can't use that much space. Check their TOS.
How do the host earn?
They will cram lots of account into a server.
Does this have any effects?
You site may be slow as there are too many sites on an average server. Besides, those clients who tries to use all of the resources given will either get suspended or overload the server, or both. This may cause your site to be down as well.
So, when you see something that is too good to be true, it is mostly not true. You must always remember that you'll get what you paid for.
SSL certificate is not that expensive, you can get them at below $20 a year. I recommend RapidSSL.
Namecheap is not a web host. Godaddy. The provide web hosting services but both are popular as domain registars. Other companies are well known in hosting business and on one can say something in general about them just like that. They obviously are good providers.
If you want quality, go for MediaLayer or DownTownHost. You can serach about their reviews in this forum and see how great is them Since online cart is more of mysql, and might cause some loads if there is too many visitors at once, you you should even go more for quality host as oversellers mostly will suspend your account if you overused their server resources which is CPU limit. MediaLayer uses directadmin and DownTownHost uses cPanel if I am not wrong. MediaLayer provide free Shared SSL by request.
