A review of Lonex

We, at koberanchsteaks.com, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. Therefore we imagine that this brief evaluation of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous data center locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Site Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at koberanchsteaks.com, have perceived is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting solutions furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting plans furnished by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom invented, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous stack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Globe will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting distributors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web page hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (since lots of clients use the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud web hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a basic web space hosting plan that cannot handle your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. In this way, you save cash that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still novel. Every web hosting package delivered by 'Lonex' contains an online website builder and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' delivers shared web space hosting packages in a number of different countries across the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole Earth is covered to provide you and your visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting service at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Lonex' are quite well stocked and are available at a cut-rate price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may appear difficult to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American data center facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to handling a normal shared hosting package through a CP user interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server package is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not come with root-level access (we, at koberanchsteaks.com, think that this is a tiny negative point), but the plus is that they are managed through the same Control Panel user interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This implies that a recognizable GUI is offered to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual web server, yet demand more power and supplies than a virtual private web server can deliver. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Servers

In koberanchsteaks.com's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' expectations, 'Lonex' provides a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable performance of any sort of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from koberanchsteaks.com, deem that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'Lonex' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server comes with free billing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at koberanchsteaks.com, think that this is a small inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you require help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (koberanchsteaks.com's) prognosis is that the outstanding point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our (koberanchsteaks.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
