A review of Lonex

We, at tomikoglobal.com, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we anticipate that this succinct review of 'Lonex' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at tomikoglobal.com, have seen is the low prices of the shared web space hosting packages supplied by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting packages offered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house developed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an autonomous pack of 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 environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web site hosting vendors cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to devise their own file platform), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus preserving the website hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers are hosted on one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed need, precluding a situation where you pay for a powerful web site hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a small web space hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site expands. So, you spare funds that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each and every hosting package supplied by 'Lonex' offers an online website building tool and over 40 popular script software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' delivers shared site hosting services in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, virtually the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast website hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting plans provided 'Lonex' are very well equipped and are available at a low-cost price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no practice, a virtual private web server may seem complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its principal US data center facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is similar to handling a regular shared site hosting account via a hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free web site builder and a script installation tool, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated plan is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting accounts. When compared to a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not offer full root access (we, at tomikoglobal.com, regard this as a small weak point), but the plus is that they are managed through the same website hosting CP user interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This implies that a well-known GUI is accessible by all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual server, but at the same time demand more power and reserves than a virtual server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-class servers as the ones which host the VPS server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be classified as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In tomikoglobal.com's opinion, big sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its users' demands, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web servers ship with: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any kind of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from tomikoglobal.com, think that all dedicated server plans delivered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for commencing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server provides free billing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at tomikoglobal.com, deem this a small negative point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade includes several extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (tomikoglobal.com's) forecast is that the splendid drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any FTP software pointless. Our (tomikoglobal.com's) inference is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
