An assessment of Lonex

We, at diveplanet.it, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we expect that this short assessment of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first detail we, at diveplanet.it, have noted is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting plans offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house created, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an independent host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have mammoth predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to develop their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud site hosting solution. With a shared website hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the site hosting price really low (since many customers utilize one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a tiny hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Hence, you economize cash that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still brand new. Every web hosting plan delivered by 'Lonex' arrives with an online website building tool and over forty popular script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' furnishes shared web page hosting packages in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, almost the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Lonex' are quite well stocked and are available at an excellent price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no experience, a VPS may seem troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a conventional shared plan through a web space hosting CP GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting package such as a free website builder and a web application installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When matched against a shared web hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated server packages do not arrive with root-level access (we, at diveplanet.it, think that this is a tiny problem), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same site hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting plans. This suggests that a recognizable graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual private web server, but at the same time need more power and resources than a VPS can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server web hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to diveplanet.it, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers arrive with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of website. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from diveplanet.it, deem that all dedicated server solutions supplied by 'Lonex' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server includes free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at diveplanet.it, consider this a slight negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of site hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (diveplanet.it's) prediction is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our (diveplanet.it's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Optima 01 package.
