A survey of Lonex

We, at stressfreepickleball.com, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting provider. Therefore we believe that this concise assessment of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole World. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Webspace Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at stressfreepickleball.com, have detected is the cheap prices of the shared website hosting packages offered 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 site hosting accounts offered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house built, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a different host of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have mammoth problems with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting distributors cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic clustered site hosting solution. With a shared site hosting account, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus preserving the price very low (because a lot of clients are located on one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered site hosting platform, allows you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic site hosting package that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site expands. In this way, you economize capital that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web space hosting package delivered by 'Lonex' sports an online site building tool and more than 40 widely used script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Lonex' delivers shared hosting solutions in a number of different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, virtually the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting solution at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting plans supplied 'Lonex' are very well equipped and are available at a budget price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a Virtual Private Server may appear hard to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to handling a normal shared package via a Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting account such as a free site building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting accounts. When compared to a shared web site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not ship with full root privileges (we, at stressfreepickleball.com, think that this is a tiny defect), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same webspace hosting CP tool as the shared hosting plans. This implies that a well-known graphical user interface is available to all users who are not confident enough to handle a virtual web server, but at the same time require more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can deliver. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Servers

In stressfreepickleball.com's opinion, large sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It appears that the chaps from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' demands, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web hosting servers boast: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from stressfreepickleball.com, think that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at stressfreepickleball.com, consider this a slight drawback, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (stressfreepickleball.com's) prognosis is that the exceptional point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any FTP software program pointless. Our (stressfreepickleball.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
