A review of Lonex

We, at fadd.us, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we expect that this concise assessment of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very useful for other folks from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Lonex' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at fadd.us, have perceived is the low prices of the shared hosting solutions offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting packages provided by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house built, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a different bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have colossal predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web site hosting vendors cannot add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud site hosting platform. With a shared plan, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price very low (because multiple clients are located on one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered web hosting system, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed require, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced web space hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic web space hosting package that cannot accommodate your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website grows. Hence, you spare capital that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still novel. Each site hosting plan offered by 'Lonex' boasts an online site builder and over forty popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lonex' delivers shared web page hosting packages in several different countries across the World. There is one data center facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, practically the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting services furnished 'Lonex' are quite well stocked and come at a very low price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual private hosting server may seem complicated to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American datacenter facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a conventional shared web space hosting plan via a web page hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting packages. When compared with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not come with full server root access (we, at fadd.us, count this as a small weak point), but the plus is that they are administered via the same hosting CP interface as the shared webspace hosting accounts. This signifies that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a virtual private web server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to fadd.us, huge websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Lonex' offers a bouquet of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware specs the web hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from fadd.us, deem that all dedicated server packages delivered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server offers free billing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at fadd.us, think that this is a little drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you demand assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (fadd.us's) forecast is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia CP will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our (fadd.us's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
