administered by 'Lonex'

An assessment of Lonex

We, at e-poshta.com, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we imagine that this brief review of 'Lonex' is probably going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently offers domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at e-poshta.com, have noticed is the modest prices of the shared website hosting services provided 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 web site hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house designed, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an autonomous set of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Globe will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting suppliers cannot include new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by a real clustered hosting platform. With a shared package, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price very low (since many customers utilize one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered hosting system, permits you to pay just for the resources that you actually demand, averting a situation where you pay for a high-end web hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a small site hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you economize capital that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Every webspace hosting plan delivered by 'Lonex' arrives with an online web site building tool and over forty popular script software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' provides shared webspace hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, almost the whole World is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages furnished 'Lonex' are quite well equipped and come at a very cheap price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a VPS web server may seem troublesome to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared site hosting plan via a CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared accounts. When matched against a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web hosting server packages do not ship with complete server root access (we, at e-poshta.com, count this as a slight inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same web hosting CP interface as the shared web hosting plans. This suggests that a familiar graphical environment is accessible by all clients who do not have enough confidence to administer a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time need more power and features than a virtual private hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web hosting server packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPSs can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be branded as being quite cheap (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In e-poshta.com's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients require a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the blokes from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its customers' anticipations, 'Lonex' delivers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the web servers sport: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of website. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from e-poshta.com, consider that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server ships with free invoice transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at e-poshta.com, consider this a little disadvantage, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (e-poshta.com's) forecast is that the outstanding point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia CP will possibly make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our (e-poshta.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
