A review of Lonex

We, at familyventuresandoffices.com, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we anticipate that this concise review of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at familyventuresandoffices.com, have observed is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting services furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans offered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house built, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a separate pack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have immense difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting firms are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to devise their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual cloud website hosting platform. With a shared web hosting package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (because a lot of users are hosted on the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web page hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a basic webspace hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your site grows. So, you spare capital that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still new. Each and every web hosting plan supplied by 'Lonex' sports an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Lonex' provides shared hosting packages in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting service at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Lonex' are really well appointed and come at a very modest price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may appear complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to handling a regular shared package through a web site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free website building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web space hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not offer complete root access (we, at familyventuresandoffices.com, consider this a slight weak point), but the advantage is that they are managed via the very same hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting plans. This indicates that a familiar graphical interface is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can give them. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be labeled as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In familyventuresandoffices.com's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its customers' anticipations, 'Lonex' delivers a bouquet of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any type of site. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from familyventuresandoffices.com, believe that all dedicated server packages offered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server offers free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at familyventuresandoffices.com, think that this is a minor problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (familyventuresandoffices.com's) forecast is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any FTP software useless. Our (familyventuresandoffices.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
