An evaluation of Lonex

We, at spearfishcafe.com, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we deem that this succinct assessment of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Lonex' currently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Website Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at spearfishcafe.com, have noticed is the affordable prices of the shared web site hosting plans offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts offered by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house designed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by an individual set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have great difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web hosting corporations are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to create their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting packages, which are powered by a genuine clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (since plenty of clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the resources that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end hosting plan that cannot shelter your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your site grows. In this way, you economize capital that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Each and every website hosting plan delivered by 'Lonex' arrives with an online website builder and over forty popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Lonex' offers shared site hosting services in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the entire Globe is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and come at an affordable price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a virtual hosting server may appear troublesome to administer. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal American datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a typical shared hosting plan via a webspace hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a free-of-charge web site builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When matched against a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not offer complete root-level access (we, at spearfishcafe.com, regard this as a minor minus), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared site hosting plans. This goes to say that a known GUI is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS web server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can supply them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In spearfishcafe.com's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' expectations, 'Lonex' offers a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any kind of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from spearfishcafe.com, believe that all dedicated server configurations furnished by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server arrives with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at spearfishcafe.com, consider this a little negative point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (spearfishcafe.com's) prognosis is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our (spearfishcafe.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), commencing from $80.00 for the Optima 01 package.
