A review of Lonex

We, at 3d4immo.com, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Therefore we consider that this succinct review of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently provides domain and hosting services in several data center sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at 3d4immo.com, have perceived is the budget prices of the shared site hosting accounts offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans supplied by 'Lonex' are powered by a custom built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on an individual bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based site hosting providers cannot include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to make their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud web space hosting system. With a shared hosting package, each client pays solely for his/her plan, thus retaining the price very low (since a lot of customers use the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually need, evading a situation where you pay for a high-end website hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a basic web site hosting plan that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. That way, you economize funds that you can spend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Every web page hosting account provided by 'Lonex' contains an online web site building tool and over 40 popular script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' delivers shared hosting accounts in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting solutions supplied 'Lonex' are really well equipped and come at an affordable price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual private web hosting server may seem hard to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is similar to handling a standard shared website hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting account such as a free-of-charge web site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When matched against a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not offer full root-level access (we, at 3d4immo.com, think that this is a tiny downside), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same site hosting CP interface as the shared web page hosting packages. This goes to say that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual hosting server, yet require more power and supplies than a private virtual web server can deliver. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge web servers as the ones which host the virtual server hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In 3d4immo.com's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' requirements, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of storage space and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from 3d4immo.com, believe that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every server ships with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at 3d4immo.com, count this as a slight defect, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers an array of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (3d4immo.com's) prediction is that the splendid point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our (3d4immo.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
