A survey of Lonex
We, at solib.org, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we imagine that this short assessment of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous data center facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:
Shared Web Site Hosting Plans
The initial thing we, at solib.org, have noted is the affordable prices of the shared web hosting packages offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting packages offered by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house created, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a different host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting companies cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to concoct their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are driven by a real cloud website hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the price really low (since numerous clients are located on one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, escaping a scenario where you pay for a powerful website hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end web hosting plan that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you save money that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still new. Each site hosting plan supplied by 'Lonex' comes with an online website builder and over forty widely used script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' supplies shared web hosting services in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, virtually the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your web page's visitors with a stable and reliable hosting solution at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and are available at an affordable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).
To clients with little to no experience, a private virtual web server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to managing a regular shared account through a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not arrive with root-level access (we, at solib.org, think of this as a minor weak point), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same web site hosting CP tool as the shared webspace hosting packages. This indicates that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to manage a virtual web hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can give them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class servers as the ones which host the VPS server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be labeled as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.
Dedicated Web Hosting Servers
In solib.org's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' delivers an array of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware configurations the servers ship with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from solib.org, believe that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'Lonex' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server ships with free invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at solib.org, consider this a tiny downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (solib.org's) prognosis is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (solib.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
