An assessment of Lonex

We, at koreanfashiononline.org, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we think that this short assessment of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing practically the entire World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at koreanfashiononline.org, have perceived is the cut-rate prices of the shared webspace hosting solutions offered 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 web space hosting accounts furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house built, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an autonomous bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have considerable predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting vendors are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to set up their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual cloud web page hosting platform. With a shared site hosting account, each client pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the website hosting price really low (since lots of customers are located on the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, escaping a situation where you pay for a high-end web page hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a tiny site hosting package that cannot accommodate your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a basic plan and upgrade as your website expands. Hence, you spare cash that you can spend on promoting the site while it is still brand new. Every web space hosting package offered by 'Lonex' boasts an online website builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Lonex' offers shared hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, approximately the entire World is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable web site hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages furnished 'Lonex' are very well stocked and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual private hosting server may appear troublesome to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a regular shared package through a webspace hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a web app installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared packages. When contrasted with a shared site hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not offer complete root-level access (we, at koreanfashiononline.org, consider this a minor disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same web hosting CP user interface as the shared plans. This signifies that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a virtual web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a private virtual hosting server can confer to them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be defined as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In koreanfashiononline.org's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the chaps from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' demands, 'Lonex' provides a selection of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the hosting servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any type of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from koreanfashiononline.org, believe that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as every web hosting server offers free invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at koreanfashiononline.org, think that this is a tiny inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you demand help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of website hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (koreanfashiononline.org's) prognosis is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our (koreanfashiononline.org's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Optima 01 package.
