Dedicated web hosting

The most avant-garde of all website hosting options, the dedicated servers supplied by Lonex supply different web page hosting CP choices: (a) Hepsia (with the Debian Linux Operating System exclusively; freely given; unlimited hosted domains; one single hosting account login; no server root access; our first suggestion on the basis of the availability of the avant-garde Domain Manager – not contained by default in any other Control Panel in the whole market); (b) DirectAdmin (free of charge); (c) cPanel (a monthly charge included). Both DirectAdmin and cPanel operate with CentOS only; unmetered hosted domain names; call for another login for domain name, invoice transaction and customer support ticket management activities; complete root-level access. All dedicated servers are available solely in the American data center facility.

Control Panel 1 - The Hepsia CP is a regular equipment only when combined with the Debian Linux Operating System and is delivered without charge. With Hepsia you can host unlimited web site names under one single web hosting account. This is achievable due to Hepsia's efficient Domain Manager menu. The other web hosting Control Panel devices, i.e. cPanel and DirectAdmin, are attainable solely with CentOS. Unlike Hepsia, with them you must have 2 separate web hosting account logins. This is so, since cPanel and DirectAdmin do not supply any domain registration/transfer/administration possibilities. If you opt for Ubuntu as an Operating System for your dedicated web hosting server, there will be no web hosting CP opportunity.

Domains Hosted 2 - unmetered domains can be hosted with all available hosting CP interfaces, but only with Hepsia you can register/transfer/manage your website names under one account. Sadly, the cPanel/DirectAdmin hosting CP interfaces do not offer such opportunity at all - there is no Domain Manager section and as a result they require 2 autonomous web hosting user accounts: one domain name management/billing/support user account and one site management user account (i.e. the actual cPanel/DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel).

OS (Operating System) 3 - you will see that the Hepsia hosting CP can run on Debian Linux only. It's free of charge to run it on your dedicated web hosting server. Hepsia is not offered with CentOS or Ubuntu. The cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting CP platforms operate only with the CentOS Operating System. Neither of them is available with Debian or Ubuntu.

Complete Root Access 4 - unavailable solely with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and offered in all other cases.
