An assessment of Lonex

We, at fooka.net, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Hence we consider that this succinct assessment of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing almost the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at fooka.net, have seen is the low prices of the shared hosting services provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the site hosting plans provided by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom invented, modern cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a separate bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have great predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web site hosting companies cannot add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to construct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered web space hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting package, each client pays only for his/her account, thus preserving the web space hosting price very low (since plenty of customers are hosted on the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really require, evading a situation where you pay for a powerful web space hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny hosting package that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you economize funds that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Every web hosting account offered by 'Lonex' comes with an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Lonex' provides shared website hosting accounts in several different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, practically the whole Earth is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting solution at a nearby location. On the whole, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Lonex' are quite well stocked and are available at a very reasonable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual private hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its main American server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a regular shared web space hosting account through a website hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web page hosting package such as a free website building tool and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting packages do not arrive with full server root access (we, at fooka.net, think that this is a minor weak point), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same web hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web hosting accounts. This means that a familiar graphical environment is available to all customers who do not feel confident enough to manage a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a virtual private hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which host the private virtual server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to fooka.net, large websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its users' requirements, 'Lonex' supplies an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any sort of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from fooka.net, believe that all dedicated server packages supplied by 'Lonex' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server includes free-of-charge invoicing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at fooka.net, think that this is a small disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (fooka.net's) prognosis is that the remarkable point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our (fooka.net's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
