A review of Lonex

We, at sarsama.com, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and web hosting distributor. This is why we consider that this short evaluation of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Lonex' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at sarsama.com, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting accounts offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom developed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by a separate host of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting environment (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors are not able to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud website hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the price really low (since numerous customers share the same server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud site hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really require, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a small web space hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. Thus, you economize funds that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still novel. Each website hosting package offered by 'Lonex' includes an online website building tool and over forty widely used script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Lonex' distributes shared web page hosting services in several different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. That way, practically the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Lonex' are really well furnished and are available at a very cheap price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a standard shared web site hosting account via a web page hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared website hosting package such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting package, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a standard too. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not ship with root privileges (we, at sarsama.com, regard this as a minor negative point), but the plus is that they are administered via the same web space hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting accounts. This means that a recognizable graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who are not confident enough to manage a VPS hosting server, yet need more power and features than a VPS hosting server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Servers

In sarsama.com's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous online stores with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' anticipations, 'Lonex' supplies an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the web hosting servers boast: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from sarsama.com, consider that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each web server arrives with free invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at sarsama.com, think that this is a minor minus, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several webspace hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (sarsama.com's) prediction is that the outstanding point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will possibly make the utilization of any FTP client pointless. Our (sarsama.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
