I would like to deploy a smart contract using truffle but I got problems while syncing the etherum blockchain. There are always blocks left and the syncing process is never finished. I don't want to talk about the syncing problem since there are a lot of open issues on github and questions on this platform and it seems the problem can't be fixed.

My questions what other possibilities do I have to deploy a smart contract? I saw there are some online tools but I'm not sure if I want to past my private key to any of these sites.


Platforms like INFURA exist to do this if you're having trouble running your own node. Truffle, for example, allows you to set INFURA as a custom provider. Infura does not handle your private keys.
