An assessment of Lonex
We, at conecs.com.br, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting provider. Therefore we think that this succinct evaluation of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in brief:
Shared Web Page Hosting Packages
The first detail we, at conecs.com.br, have perceived is the budget prices of the shared hosting plans delivered 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 site hosting packages delivered by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house built, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a different pack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have considerable difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting providers are unable to include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they need to construct their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered web hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the site hosting price very low (because numerous customers utilize one and the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered website hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really need, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a high-end web site hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny web page hosting package that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your online presence expands. That way, you spare cash that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still novel. Every web page hosting plan supplied by 'Lonex' comes with an online website builder and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design solutions. 'Lonex' delivers shared site hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, almost the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a stable and fast web page hosting solution at a nearby place. Altogether, the shared hosting services supplied 'Lonex' are really well equipped and come at a very affordable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).
To people with little to no experience, a VPS may appear tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to managing a conventional shared web page hosting plan through a web space hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When matched against a shared website hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server packages do not offer full server root privileges (we, at conecs.com.br, count this as a minor weakness), but the plus is that they are administered via the same CP GUI as the shared web space hosting accounts. This implies that a recognizable graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a virtual private hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be labeled as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
In conecs.com.br's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online stores with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the folks from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' expectations, 'Lonex' offers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the web servers ship with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from conecs.com.br, believe that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server includes free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers furnished by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at conecs.com.br, think that this is a little inconvenience, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (conecs.com.br's) prognosis is that the amazing drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will possibly render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (conecs.com.br's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
