A survey of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Hence we consider that this brief evaluation of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering virtually the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have observed is the inexpensive prices of the shared webspace hosting solutions furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house invented, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being dealt with by an independent stack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Earth will have mammoth predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting companies are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to set up their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are driven by a real cloud web page hosting solution. With a shared web space hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus preserving the web site hosting price really low (because numerous users utilize one and the same web server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud webspace hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, evading a situation where you pay for a powerful web hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web site hosting plan that cannot accommodate your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. So, you spare money that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still new. Every web site hosting account offered by 'Lonex' includes an online website building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lonex' supplies shared webspace hosting packages in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, almost the entire Earth is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting service at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting packages provided 'Lonex' are quite well appointed and come at an excellent price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual private web server may seem difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is similar to handling a standard shared web site hosting plan via a hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared webspace hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When compared to a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted top-level domain name allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, count this as a minor negative point), but the plus is that they are managed through the very same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared webspace hosting plans. This means that a known GUI is available to all customers who are not confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, yet need more power and reserves than a VPS can supply them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be branded as being amazingly cheap (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online stores with thousands of clients need a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It seems that the guys from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' demands, 'Lonex' supplies an assortment of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server comes with free-of-cost billing transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of website hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the outstanding point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will possibly make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
