    The ToS states IRC servers are not allowed. How do you know if a client is operating an IRC server? Same question re: Tor.

    What does it mean that the ToS disallows “Streaming”? An example would be helpful.

    Also, the ToS says torrents are allowed but not allowed. Very confusing.

    October 14, 2013 @ 12:08 pm | Reply
    • Streaming videos etc. or live streaming of infringing content is not allowed.

      Torrents are allowed as stated for personal usage only, ie. not for public torrent services

      Indeed, and referring back to my comment above it was a rocky road not helped by a number of factors, but that does appear to have changed and as many will attest, I don’t change my mind much when it comes to views about providers around LET.

      October 14, 2013 @ 4:40 pm | Reply
    • Those times were purely due to large inbound DDoS in UK, there is in fact no bad reviews on the actual service so please get it right.

      Feel free to look at the LEB reviews on StormVZ they have been great except when we got over 10-15Gbps in DDoS and were forced to move.

      Rebrand was due to legal issue on a trademark so you once again need to do further research.

    • Xei:

      I think that’s the nice thing about the LEB community, they’re willing to give any host any number of chances. I’m among the few that sticks with mature providers only, but I do like to see the constant flow of new companies that help make the environment competitive.

    Almost signed up but then thought to check the ToS. My reason for buying was to run a minecraft server for my son and a few friends. It’s only in active use ~4 hours a day, and cron’d to shut down every night, but still clearly not within the ToS. Anyone have any suggestions for a similarly good bargain that would work?

    Sigh. I’ll snatch the 1GB yearly without a second thought if the yearly IP cost is not that expensive. It’s higher than the hosting plan itself!

    Hey Iniz,

    Couple questions:
    1. are the vCPU’s guaranteed or shared?
    2. when I click the link, in the server specs description, last line says “Amsterdam, NL” but I can select “NY” down below – are these deals only available in Amsterdam? Or can I actually get any of these deals in NY as well?

      1. Shared – Far Usage – See Terms
      2. We’ll get description updated, you can choose any location on order form. They are all available (NY/LA & NL)

        Yes, I answer my own question shortly after about your CPU and was just coming back here to post it:
        * Each VPS is given “fair-share” CPU usage on the server. CPUs sit idle in most cases. Each VPS has access to several vCPU(depending on your plan) and can use it’s processing power as and when required, since you are sharing the CPUs with other clients on the node we have a fair share usage limit. If your VPS happens to cause issues to other clients on the node your VPS will be suspended and notified and asked to make changes to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

        I have one additional question for you:
        Regarding future “upgrades” to the server; If I decided say, 6 mo. from now I need more RAM, is it possible to add-on additional RAM to these plans – or any of your plans (for an extra add-on fee of some kind)?

    Just signed up with them (2GB plan) and I am simply blown away by the speed.

    It’s even faster than a Windows Azure Medium sized VM. Plus this one handles rDNS properly.

    Tech support was fantastic as well, Patrick replied to me within 30 minutes although it’s a Sunday.

    Hi, this seems like a good deal.

    Just curious about the tor usage. Is it just tor exit nodes that are disallowed?

    I assume running tor for personal use on the server is OK? What about hidden services (again with no exit traffic).

    I would just like to tell everyone that is thinking of signing up for INIZ to think twice because it seems they are trying to grab people’s ID for tracking purposes. I ordered a VPS in NL with my bank debit card. I’m in the US and this card is tied to my billing address and my local bank. The order form has this address and the ccv code. The order went through fine and then they suspended my service later for certain “risks” that they didn’t elaborate on. They wanted to get a photocopy of my ID and CC! Why would I send this to a foreign company. Especially shady people like the ones that operate on here. These people are nothing but front companies for their local INTEl bureaus working in concert with International Government. Most likely a nice honeypot for GCHQ. I would advise people to stay away from INIZ or pretty much anything on LEB as it seems these businesses have little ethical morals.

    • I have services with them and they have never asked me for photo copy of ID. They must have observed decrepancies in your transaction hence asked for PHOTO ID, and I think its general practice.

      • This would be the simple way of putting it rather than his extremist views for whatever reason.

        We rarely ask for ID of any sort but when we do it’s because of discrepancy in card verification or failed our internal checks (fraudrecord etc.)

        He has already been refunded for not wanting to provide which is some what understandable.

    • We sold out pretty quick, more than I personally expected also.

      Unfortunately we don’t have an ETA on restock, they will be added frequently when there’s free space available / clients cancel.

    Full Server down 24 hours and data loss. Provider don’t like any responsability after hard disk crash.

    October 25, 2013 @ 1:52 pm | Reply
    • NL4 had multiple HDD failures and we had to run a FSCK and the server was down for several hours but no where close to even 12 hours downtime so this is clearly not true.

      I have not noticed a ticket from anyone called “Francisco” regarding data loss because all VMs were and area in a recoverable and working state.

      I’m not sure what responsibility you want me to take here? HDD crashes can be unpredictable especially when multiple fail at the same time and we clearly state clients should maintain there own backups.

        My server was also down due to this but the 24 hours comment is not true, I don’t know exactly how long it was down but I’m certain Patrick is right when he says under 12 hours.

        The whole situation was resolved really quickly and I was updated by Email.

    I had one of my services suspended today but it was completely my fault, my CPU usage was indeed too high – I just wasn’t quite aware how high it really was until I was shown the statistics.

    I created a ticket on the website as instructed and Patrick responded in just 5 minutes to tell me exactly why I had been suspended, I explained that I would lower my CPU usage and we agreed what would be acceptable and my service was unsuspended straight away.

    Really top customer service from Patrick

    Joe/Patrick: What is ‘my CPU usage was indeed high’ is that akin to another LEB provider where you’re only allowed to use 25% of a CPU and under their ToS that is ‘excessive resources?’ I’m in the market for a new LEB provider and would like to know what the threshold is before deciding to go with INIZ… TY.

    Definitely a very nice offer because both the RAM and space. Hope to see more competition at this price point for similar resources. I am not familiar with the provider but they’ve done well to make the top 3 for the quarter. Reminds me of how RamNode got into the Top 3 shortly after joining here.

    I’ve had a VM with INIZ for two weeks. I’m currently in the process of moving to another provider. Here’s why:

    I’ve had performance issues since day one. The server would get very sluggish and unresponsive. I opened a ticket on Oct 28th. and Patrick said “We are aware of the issue, this mostly happens when multiple clients are running crons at the same time every hours and are looking to resolve this.”

    The node my server is on was rebooted at 3:36am today. I had problems with it until 10:17am. I opened a support ticket asking if I could get a backup of my server, if I could be moved to a more stable server, and mentioned that I’m still seeing performance issues. My first two questions were ignored and Patrick responded: “We fixed the cron issues many months back when we moved to our current new NL DC.” which is in direct conflict with what he told me two weeks ago.

    He also added: “the node you had over 120+ days of uptime without issues” which is also in conflict with what he said to Francisco above. The fact of the matter is that they appear to have issues keeping their servers up and I was lied to. The former happens, the latter is inexcusable.

    Beware, I tried to subscribe and pay with paypal. I’ve put fake information for my address and so on, since I consider that, as long as I pay, they don’t have to know my real name.
    I was billed but my order was ‘rejected’ because my profile was ‘at risk’.
    (I was refunded after that, after several emails to the support)
    So if you don’t want to disclose your real name, don’t go there…

    Hi Patrick, my vps ordered is pending, how long it take to setup?
    when I try logon to the clientarea,
    the password used to make the purchase was rejected.
    is this normal when the vps is not ready?
    can you help to look into this?

    • If your invoice is marked as “Paid” and VPS is still pending then most likely reason is because your hostname is not in the correct format (or too short ~4 characters) and auto setup failed.

      It’ll be activated shortly if so with a alternative hostname.

        thanks for the prompt reply patrick,
        as my last check, the status still pending.

        perhaps you can help to alter it if possible.

    Got a VPS 2GB (yearly payment) from Iniz for about a week now, so far things are great! However, they mentioned within the order form that I would get a VPS located in Amsterdam, NL. I received a VPS that is located in Germany instead. I’m rather confused.

    • It is in Amsterdam, NL physically as we don’t even have any servers in Germany. I presume you’re looking up your VPS IP on an outdated geo database.

    Just wanted to chime in and say I’ve been with them about 5 months now. Only just cancelled my service as I no longer need the server for what I was using it for, but expect to need it again in future and will likely go on a 1-year plan next time around. Service was great the entire time. Uptime was fantastic and never had a problem accessing server. Bandwidth was always good and stable. Thanks lots Iniz, you guys rock!

    Hi Patrick. I currently have the IO3G server from openvz.io and I use it for personal VPN. I was wondering if the above 256mb-year or 1g-year offers use the same servers in NY or if they are located in Buffalo. Reason is: I am using it as my main connection out to the world (the vpn) as I get the best pings & speeds out of you from all the vps’s I tried and I have a VPN under another company running Windows which has my MT4 instances running (forex) and my rdp to it is pretty fast. If they are in the same place then I would probably switch to the 1yr plan of 256 or 1gb as 3gb is overkill for just vpn.

  66. hello, is it ok to use a vps as an smtp server? nothing spammy or unsolicited ads. We have a huge forum and plan to send a monthly newsletter to our registered users (about a hundred thousand). I’m asking because no matter what we do someone might complain for whatever reason and i don’t want to be suspended over it.

    My service just got suspended without any warning. After contacting Mr Patrick Hayward, he explained me I was using one of three available CPUs for 100% for just few minutes (!!!). It is absolutely common your software must sometimes use the CPU, nothing I run is on INIZ prohibited software list, it was just a small MySQL instance indexing the data for few minutes.

    It was absolutely stupid paying in advance for a year, I can agree, and Mr Patrick Hayward does not want to give the money back. We are going to small claims court with INIZ, and I will be informing you here on the LowEndBox about the continuation of the story. The last message I got from We wish you the best of luck.

    The last message I got from INIZ was:

    As you have threatened legal action, we cease any contact and service with you in effect immediately.

    We look forward to hearing from you, you may write directly to the below address and any further electronic emails will be ignored:
    INIZ
    Suite 439
    109 Vernon House
    Friar Lane

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
