An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we expect that this succinct review of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the World in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the low-cost prices of the shared hosting accounts furnished 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 website hosting accounts offered by 'Lonex' are powered by a custom invented, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have huge complications with, because cPanel is a one-server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting corporations are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must make their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic clustered web hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the price really low (since many clients are hosted on the same web hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really require, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich site hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end web hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. So, you economize cash that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting account supplied by 'Lonex' comes with an online site builder and over 40 widely used script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Lonex' provides shared website hosting accounts in several different countries around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, nearly the whole Earth is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable hosting service at a desired place. As a whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'Lonex' are very well stocked and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual private web server may seem tough to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States server farm facility in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a normal shared website hosting plan through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated web hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting plan. For example, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web space hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a standard too. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not arrive with full root-level access (we, at, consider this a small drawback), but the plus is that they are administered through the same web hosting CP user interface as the shared web hosting plans. This means that a well-known graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a VPS web server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a private virtual server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful cutting edge web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the private virtual web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be labeled as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful website hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its users' needs, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of website. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each and every web server offers free-of-charge billing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a minor minus, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a number of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of website hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the remarkable drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps make the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
