does SURPASSHOSTING.com have a good reputation and reliable service? i saw their plans are pretty ok.. (1000mb/$48per yr).. OR, any other suggestions to a cool webhost that offers around 200mb+, cpanel, scripts, at least 5 email or ftp accounts?

Lurk around in their forums. They don't edit or censor their users comments so you'll see the good & bad there.
That's not true, or at least it wasn't when I was with them. I saw them change titles and edit things. They may not do it anymore, but did in the past. I left during the bad spell, so I can't say how their service actually is now.

Their bad spell? The one day, December 27 2003?
They do not edit posts on their webhosting community. With the exception of foul language, attacks, and wrong help information passed on by thoughtful members.

Well I have to say that's not true as they edited my post. I posted that the server was down, not using any foul language, or even with a bad attitude. My post was just that I couldn't get to my website. They went in and edited the title so it didn't say the server was down, it only said question about my website. In that time I also saw them edit several other posts, I know because I read the threads before and after they were edited.
I have been with surpass hosting for 16 months and I think they're great. Only major issue I ever had was when a HD crashed on their server months ago and they had to replace it. They kept us informed throughout the process and it had back up quickly. The way host handles themselves when something goes wrong is just as important and surpass did a great job that one time. As to them editing their forums I don't know what you said but it is their forum after all. If they edited a post it must have been for a reason. After 16 months with surpass hosting I'll give them the benefit of the doubt over someone posting here...sorry. They're great in my book plus they're now offering a 90 day money back guarantee so you have nothing to loose. Try them out. If they edit your posts you can leave.
