An assessment of Lonex

We, at handsanrecyclers.com, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain and web hosting provider. This is why we presume that this short assessment of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at handsanrecyclers.com, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared site hosting packages offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house invented, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an autonomous pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have considerable predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting providers are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must create their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered site hosting system. With a shared web space hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (since lots of users utilize one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end site hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a small site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you save cash that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Each and every web page hosting account delivered by 'Lonex' arrives with an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' offers shared site hosting services in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, virtually the entire Globe is covered to present you and your visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Lonex' are quite well stocked and are available at a very attractive price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may appear complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a normal shared web space hosting package through a site hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated account is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When matched against a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated plans do not offer complete root access (we, at handsanrecyclers.com, deem this a small weak point), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting accounts. This signifies that a familiar GUI is accessible by all clients who are not confident enough to administer a VPS hosting server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a private virtual web hosting server can offer. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which host the virtual server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In handsanrecyclers.com's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web stores with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'Lonex' provides an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the servers boast: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and steady performance of any type of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from handsanrecyclers.com, believe that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server offers free-of-cost billing transaction software platform and a bonus domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at handsanrecyclers.com, count this as a minor weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (handsanrecyclers.com's) forecast is that the superb point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (handsanrecyclers.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
