An assessment of Lonex

We, at diakuiu.com, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. This is why we suppose that this succinct assessment of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Lonex' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at diakuiu.com, have noted is the cheap prices of the shared hosting packages provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting packages delivered by 'Lonex' are powered by a custom devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by a separate stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have considerable predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting vendors cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to invent their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the web site hosting price really low (since plenty of clients utilize one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered website hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you really require, avoiding a situation where you pay for an advanced website hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a tiny web site hosting plan that cannot handle your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic package and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you spare capital that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each and every site hosting plan provided by 'Lonex' contains an online site builder and more than 40 popular script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Lonex' furnishes shared web page hosting plans in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, almost the whole World is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting solution at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Lonex' are really well appointed and are available at a very affordable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may appear troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to managing a normal shared plan through a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When compared to a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not arrive with root access (we, at diakuiu.com, deem this a slight minus), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same website hosting CP user interface as the shared site hosting plans. This hints that a well-known graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and supplies than a virtual private web hosting server can provide them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class web servers as the ones which host the private virtual server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to diakuiu.com, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web space hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' demands, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from diakuiu.com, think that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server offers free invoice transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at diakuiu.com, consider this a small problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of site hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (diakuiu.com's) prediction is that the superb point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (diakuiu.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
