An evaluation of Lonex

We, at eyesonguyana.com, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we think that this short evaluation of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at eyesonguyana.com, have seen is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting plans delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting accounts furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house created, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an individual group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have immense predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to make their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud web hosting solution. With a shared package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the webspace hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of clients are located on the same web server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a clustered hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your website grows. In this way, you spare cash that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Each and every website hosting account delivered by 'Lonex' offers an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Lonex' provides shared web space hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Thus, almost the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting services provided 'Lonex' are very well equipped and are available at a very modest price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a normal shared website hosting plan via a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared website hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server account is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When matched against a shared web hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated web hosting packages do not offer full server root privileges (we, at eyesonguyana.com, think that this is a little disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are managed via the very same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web hosting plans. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all customers who are not confident enough to manage a virtual private hosting server, yet demand more power and reserves than a VPS can deliver. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful ultramodern servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be branded as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to eyesonguyana.com, big sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its users' expectations, 'Lonex' delivers an array of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate stands on the hardware specs the dedicated servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from eyesonguyana.com, think that all dedicated server specs supplied by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at eyesonguyana.com, deem this a slight inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (eyesonguyana.com's) prediction is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our (eyesonguyana.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
