A review of Lonex

We, at sw7.com.br, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this short review of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing approximately the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at sw7.com.br, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared website hosting solutions supplied by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages offered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a different set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have great troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting distributors cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by an actual cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared web hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the price really low (because a lot of users share one and the same web server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web site hosting system, enables you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, evading a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small web space hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your website grows. That way, you save money that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still novel. Every website hosting account furnished by 'Lonex' boasts an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' offers shared website hosting plans in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, nearly the entire planet is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and fast hosting solution at a convenient location. As a whole, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Lonex' are really well equipped and are available at a budget price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS may appear troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a conventional shared webspace hosting plan through a webspace hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting plan such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server plan is many times greater than that of a shared plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not arrive with full server root access (we, at sw7.com.br, think of this as a slight weakness), but the good point is that they are administered through the same Control Panel GUI as the shared accounts. This implies that a known graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a private virtual web server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual web server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate servers as the ones which host the private virtual web server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the virtual servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be branded as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In sw7.com.br's opinion, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of customers need a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' supplies a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the web hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of site. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from sw7.com.br, believe that all dedicated server specifications delivered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server comes with free billing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at sw7.com.br, think of this as a tiny negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides several extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sw7.com.br's) prediction is that the remarkable point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any FTP client pointless. Our (sw7.com.br's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
