A review of Lonex

We, at aqueadesign.com, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we believe that this succinct review of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Lonex' presently offers domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually 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 nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at aqueadesign.com, have discerned is the affordable prices of the shared hosting services provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans supplied by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house created, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by an individual group of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Globe will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting distributors cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must construct their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared account, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the web hosting price amazingly low (since lots of clients are hosted on the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered site hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you actually need, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end web space hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end site hosting account that cannot shelter your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still novel. Each and every web space hosting package delivered by 'Lonex' arrives with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lonex' supplies shared site hosting solutions in several different regions across the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable webspace hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Lonex' are very well appointed and come at a very modest price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual web server may seem hard to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to managing a typical shared web space hosting package via a website hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not arrive with full server root access (we, at aqueadesign.com, count this as a minor drawback), but the plus is that they are administered through the same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared accounts. This means that a user-friendly GUI is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a VPS server can furnish them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In aqueadesign.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' demands, 'Lonex' provides an assortment of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and stable work of any type of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from aqueadesign.com, think that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server includes free invoicing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at aqueadesign.com, deem this a small drawback, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you require aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A number of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (aqueadesign.com's) prediction is that the great drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software program futile. Our (aqueadesign.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $80.00 for the Optima 01 package.
