The host can really determine how many traces you have from you URL to your server. The speed of the ping can improve and decrease your site's load time. You may be interested in knowing your IP neighborhood from your hosting provider to find out which sites you are sharing a server with. If you use a fairly big name hosting provider, it shouldn't have much impact on your SEO.
