A survey of Lonex

We, at virtualtoursthelena.com, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain and hosting provider. Hence we anticipate that this brief evaluation of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering almost the whole World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Webspace Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at virtualtoursthelena.com, have perceived is the cut-rate prices of the shared web space hosting services supplied by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom built, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an individual group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have big difficulties with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web hosting suppliers cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must concoct their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud website hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the web hosting price very low (since many clients use one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud website hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, precluding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end webspace hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your online presence grows. In this way, you save cash that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still new. Each website hosting plan supplied by 'Lonex' contains an online web site builder and more than forty popular script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Lonex' distributes shared site hosting solutions in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, almost the entire planet is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting plans supplied 'Lonex' are very well stocked and come at a very good price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear troublesome to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to administering a regular shared website hosting account through a web space hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not offer full root access (we, at virtualtoursthelena.com, think of this as a slight downside), but the good point is that they are administered via the same web page hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting plans. This goes to say that a familiar graphical environment is available to all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and features than a VPS web hosting server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which host the virtual web server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the VPS hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be defined as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Servers

In virtualtoursthelena.com's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' offers a number of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any type of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from virtualtoursthelena.com, believe that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every server includes free invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at virtualtoursthelena.com, think of this as a slight downside, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of site hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (virtualtoursthelena.com's) prognosis is that the superb drag-and-drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (virtualtoursthelena.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
