An assessment of Lonex

We, at diakuemo.com, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we expect that this brief review of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the whole Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at diakuemo.com, have perceived is the budget prices of the shared site hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting packages offered by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom created, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a separate group of web servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting providers are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud site hosting platform. With a shared website hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the site hosting price really low (because plenty of customers use one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, evading a situation where you pay for a powerful website hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small website hosting package that cannot handle your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a low-end package and upgrade as your website expands. That way, you save funds that you can invest in advertising the web page while it is still novel. Each hosting package furnished by 'Lonex' comes with an online site builder and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' distributes shared web site hosting accounts in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, virtually the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable web hosting solution at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'Lonex' are really well equipped and are available at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a VPS server may seem tough to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main United States datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to handling a standard shared web site hosting plan through a CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting plan such as a fee-free web site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared site hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting packages. When compared to a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated server web hosting plans do not come with full root privileges (we, at diakuemo.com, think that this is a tiny problem), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This hints that a known graphical user interface is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a private virtual server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a Virtual Private Server can furnish them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In diakuemo.com's opinion, large websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To satisfy its customers' expectations, 'Lonex' provides a selection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers come with: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from diakuemo.com, think that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated hosting server includes free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at diakuemo.com, consider this a small disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a few extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (diakuemo.com's) forecast is that the amazing drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our (diakuemo.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
