A survey of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. This is why we suppose that this short evaluation of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering nearly the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The first thing we, at, have noticed is the inexpensive prices of the shared web space hosting solutions supplied by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the hosting packages offered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house built, ultramodern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by a separate bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel webspace hosting distributors 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 system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered website hosting system. With a shared web space hosting package, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus keeping the price really low (since a lot of users utilize the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really need, precluding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting account that you cannot truly use, or for a low-end webspace hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you spare money that you can expend on promoting the web site while it is still novel. Each and every webspace hosting plan offered by 'Lonex' ships with an online web site builder and over forty widely used script software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Lonex' provides shared hosting solutions in several different regions around the World. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Thus, almost the whole Earth is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable web site hosting service at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting services offered 'Lonex' are very well furnished and come at a very modest price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a virtual server may appear tough to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to managing a standard shared account through a web hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared site hosting plan such as a fee-free website builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared packages. When juxtaposed to a shared web hosting account, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated plans do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, deem this a little weakness), but the good point is that they are managed through the same site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared plans. This implies that a recognizable graphical environment is available to all clients who are not self-confident enough to handle a virtual web server, but at the same time demand more power and resources than a VPS server can confer to them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-class servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server hosting accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), while the virtual private web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Servers

According to, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the chaps from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' offers a number of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specs the dedicated servers sport: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady performance of any sort of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server ships with free billing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a tiny weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web space hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
