A survey of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain and hosting vendor. This is why we expect that this brief evaluation of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently supplies domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing almost the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have detected is the cut-rate prices of the shared site hosting plans furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting packages supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom devised, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on an individual host of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have enormous troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting providers are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must invent their own file system), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual clustered site hosting system. With a shared website hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus maintaining the website hosting price very low (because lots of users utilize one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you economize capital that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Every web hosting plan delivered by 'Lonex' contains an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Lonex' supplies shared web site hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole World is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable hosting solution at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans provided 'Lonex' are very well furnished and come at a budget price (beginning from $4.25 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a VPS web server may seem problematic to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared web page hosting package via a Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared plan such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a web application installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times greater than that of a shared web space hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not include full root-level access (we, at, think of this as a tiny downside), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same web page hosting CP user interface as the shared site hosting plans. This implies that a recognizable graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who are not confident enough to handle a private virtual server, yet demand more power and features than a virtual web hosting server can deliver. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the chaps from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its users' demands, 'Lonex' offers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specifications the web servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts provided by 'Lonex' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a little negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes an assortment of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web space hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the remarkable drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting CP will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
