An assessment of Lonex

We, at domingogroup.co.za, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Therefore we think that this concise review of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at domingogroup.co.za, have seen is the low-cost prices of the shared webspace hosting accounts supplied 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 hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house devised, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an independent group of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have enormous difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors are unable to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must invent their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting account, each client pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the web hosting price really low (since a lot of customers are located on one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud site hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, precluding a situation where you pay for a high-end hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small website hosting account that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your web presence expands. Hence, you economize capital that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each web page hosting package provided by 'Lonex' includes an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' delivers shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast webspace hosting service at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans furnished 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and are available at an attractive price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a VPS web server may appear problematic to administer. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal US server farm in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to administering a standard shared web page hosting plan through a web page hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared site hosting account such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a web application installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared accounts. When matched against a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not arrive with server root access (we, at domingogroup.co.za, deem this a little weakness), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting accounts. This indicates that a well-known graphical user interface is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual web server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a private virtual web hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be defined as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to domingogroup.co.za, big web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful hosting solution. It seems that the chaps from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'Lonex' provides an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation is based on the hardware configurations the hosting servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from domingogroup.co.za, consider that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each server includes free-of-charge invoicing software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at domingogroup.co.za, count this as a tiny disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (domingogroup.co.za's) prognosis is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting CP will perhaps make the use of any FTP client pointless. Our (domingogroup.co.za's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Optima 01 package.
