Tags: , , Date/Time: December 4, 2009 @ 12:28 am, by LowEndAdmin
Update Jan 2011: SynHost.eu has been sold in March 2010, and the site has been down since December 2010. Looks like it is not coming back.

SynHost.eu Via this WHT offer. SynHost.eu — domain registered back in August & Germany based operation — has released some cheap VPS plans. You’ll get the following for $4.95/month:

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 250GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/HyperVM

Servers are hosted with InterServer.net in New York.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.


  1. Uncle Bob:

    I never heard about InterServer.net and took a look to InterServer.net’s TOS:
    3.b is only applicable to virtual hosting and reseller accounts. No site may use more than 15% of the total server output at any given time.
    Adult Sites (pornographic) are prohibited on shared/virtual hosting and shared/reseller accounts. Mailing Lists with over 2,000 members are prohibited on shared/virtual hosting and shared/reseller accounts. Web Based forums with over 2,000 members are prohibited on shared/virtual hosting and shared/reseller accounts. Interserver reserves the right to suspend any client which violates section 3 of our Terms Of Service.

    There is nothing about that on SynHost.eu TOS page: http://www.synhost.eu/tos.html

    And one more: “You may not use over 12% CPU and Ram usage” – is it normal, only 12%?
    Just a curiosity.

    @Uncle Bob: 12[.5]% makes sense on 8-core setups as that means ~100% load on a single core.
    12% of the RAM (it seems this is for the shared hosting) on a large server is huge for a single site (~1GB on a 8GB box), so I think it is justified.

  3. Hello,

    The tos is from interserver’s vps. And the 12 percents are from shared hosting. I will update the tos ASAP. The vps’s are hosted in wholesaleinternet datacenter.

    Best Regards,

    SynHost.eu was sold to IGOSBE, and IGSOBE is an immensely unreliable company with no end of complaints on WHT.
