An assessment of Lonex

We, at ekohbrush.com, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we suppose that this short assessment of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter locations: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at ekohbrush.com, have detected is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting packages delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting plans offered by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by a separate group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have mammoth difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web space hosting distributors cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must devise their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by a real cloud web page hosting system. With a shared package, each client pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the website hosting price very low (because multiple clients are located on one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web space hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you indeed require, evading a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your web page grows. That way, you economize cash that you can spend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting plan offered by 'Lonex' sports an online website building tool and more than forty widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Lonex' distributes shared site hosting solutions in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European server farms - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, approximately the entire Earth is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and fast web hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and come at a budget price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual web server may appear hard to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to handling a typical shared web page hosting plan through a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared hosting package such as a free-of-cost site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared site hosting plans. When compared with a shared web site hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server hosting accounts do not ship with root privileges (we, at ekohbrush.com, deem this a minor disadvantage), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same web page hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting accounts. This indicates that a user-friendly graphical user interface is accessible by all users who are not self-confident enough to administer a VPS, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS hosting server can give them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the virtual web servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be classified as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to ekohbrush.com, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online stores with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web space hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its customers' demands, 'Lonex' provides a selection of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the web hosting servers have: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from ekohbrush.com, believe that all dedicated server plans furnished by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server offers free invoicing transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at ekohbrush.com, think of this as a little inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. Several webspace hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (ekohbrush.com's) forecast is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting CP will probably render the use of any FTP software program useless. Our (ekohbrush.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
