A survey of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we consider that this short evaluation of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently provides domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the modest prices of the shared website hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom invented, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an independent set of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have colossal difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel hosting providers are not able to include extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must develop their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered web page hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the webspace hosting price very low (since numerous customers are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud web hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you really require, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your site expands. So, you spare cash that you can expend on publicizing the web site while it is still brand new. Every web site hosting plan supplied by 'Lonex' includes an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' provides shared web site hosting solutions in a number of different countries across the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. In this way, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast web page hosting solution at a preferred place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Lonex' are really well furnished and come at a low-cost price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no experience, a private virtual hosting server may seem tough to handle. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal US data center in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a regular shared web page hosting package via a CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-cost website builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting accounts. When matched against a shared web hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a principle too. The semi-dedicated server plans do not come with complete server root access (we, at, consider this a tiny minus), but the good point is that they are managed via the same web hosting CP tool as the shared site hosting plans. This goes to say that a familiar GUI is offered to all customers who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a private virtual web server can confer to them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which host the virtual private web hosting server packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be branded as being quite affordable (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' supplies a collection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server configurations offered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web server ships with free invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web hosting servers furnished by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the remarkable point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia CP will perhaps make the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Optima 01 package.
