An assessment of Lonex

We, at un-nouveau-regard.info, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we consider that this brief evaluation of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing virtually the whole planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at un-nouveau-regard.info, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared web hosting services provided 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 supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house invented, leading edge cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a separate bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have immense difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based hosting corporations are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to construct their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine clustered web page hosting solution. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the web hosting price very low (because multiple clients utilize the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end website hosting plan that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence expands. That way, you economize money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each webspace hosting plan delivered by 'Lonex' comes with an online website builder and over forty widely used script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lonex' distributes shared hosting plans in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, approximately the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting service at a preferred location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Lonex' are quite well appointed and come at an attractive price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a private virtual server may appear complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a conventional shared web space hosting plan via a site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a free site building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared web hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not come with complete server root access (we, at un-nouveau-regard.info, count this as a tiny inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same site hosting Control Panel tool as the shared plans. This indicates that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all customers who are not confident enough to manage a virtual private web server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS web server can supply them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-end servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Servers

In un-nouveau-regard.info's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' needs, 'Lonex' provides an array of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers include: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from un-nouveau-regard.info, believe that all dedicated server plans offered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every web server ships with free-of-cost billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at un-nouveau-regard.info, regard this as a little negative point, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An assortment of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (un-nouveau-regard.info's) forecast is that the superb drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our (un-nouveau-regard.info's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
