A review of Lonex

We, at weareseeds.org, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. Therefore we consider that this brief review of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the Globe, since the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at weareseeds.org, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house designed, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an independent stack of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier in the World will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must devise their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine cloud web site hosting system. With a shared website hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the webspace hosting price really low (because many clients utilize one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting platform, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced website hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web hosting package that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your web site expands. That way, you spare money that you can invest in publicizing the web site while it is still new. Each and every hosting plan provided by 'Lonex' ships with an online site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' furnishes shared website hosting services in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, approximately the entire planet is covered to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting solution at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Lonex' are quite well equipped and are available at a very modest price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual private hosting server may seem troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared site hosting plan through a hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free website building tool and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web page hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not include complete root access (we, at weareseeds.org, deem this a slight drawback), but the benefit is that they are administered through the very same hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting plans. This signifies that a known graphical user interface is offered to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a private virtual server, yet are in need of more power and features than a private virtual web server can furnish them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be classified as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to weareseeds.org, huge websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' provides an array of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the hosting servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from weareseeds.org, think that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as every server includes free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at weareseeds.org, regard this as a small downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (weareseeds.org's) forecast is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly render the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our (weareseeds.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
