An evaluation of Lonex

We, at e-cerkva.org, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting supplier. Therefore we think that this brief assessment of 'Lonex' is probably going to be very useful for other individuals from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, since the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the whole planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at e-cerkva.org, have perceived is the inexpensive prices of the shared web hosting solutions furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom devised, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an individual stack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have considerable troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting providers cannot include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual cloud site hosting system. With a shared hosting plan, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the web space hosting price very low (since lots of customers share the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny hosting account that cannot accommodate your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end package and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you economize money that you can invest in promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Every web page hosting package supplied by 'Lonex' comprises an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Lonex' offers shared web hosting solutions in several different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, nearly the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable web site hosting solution at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and come at a very reasonable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no practice, a virtual web server may appear difficult to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to managing a normal shared web space hosting account through a hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting package such as a fee-free web site builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web site hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not come with full server root privileges (we, at e-cerkva.org, think of this as a minor negative point), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same website hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting accounts. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS hosting server, yet require more power and system resources than a virtual private web hosting server can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being quite affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to e-cerkva.org, big websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the guys from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' expectations, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the web servers have: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any sort of website. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from e-cerkva.org, consider that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Lonex' are also suitable for launching a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server includes free-of-cost billing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at e-cerkva.org, consider this a minor negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (e-cerkva.org's) forecast is that the splendid point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (e-cerkva.org's) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (still the Hepsia Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
