A survey of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting supplier. Therefore we expect that this short evaluation of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering virtually the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared hosting solutions delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting accounts provided by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house invented, innovative cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by a separate set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have considerable difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being served by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting suppliers cannot include additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered hosting platform. With a shared hosting account, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (because plenty of customers use one and the same web server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered site hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you really need, averting a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny web page hosting account that cannot handle your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to begin with a small package and upgrade as your website expands. In this way, you spare money that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still new. Every web site hosting account delivered by 'Lonex' comes with an online site building tool and over 40 popular script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' furnishes shared web site hosting solutions in several different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. That way, practically the entire World is covered to provide you and your visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting solution at a nearby location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Lonex' are quite well appointed and are available at an attractive price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS may appear troublesome to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to administering a conventional shared hosting package via a web hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting plan such as a fee-free web site building tool and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated hosting server package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server accounts do not ship with full root access (we, at, count this as a little drawback), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web space hosting Control Panel interface as the shared site hosting plans. This hints that a recognizable graphical environment is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to manage a private virtual web server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual server can bestow on them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful avant-garde hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' anticipations, 'Lonex' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely ensure the quick and steady work of any type of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Lonex' are also suitable for initiating a hosting reseller business as each server comes with free-of-charge invoicing transaction software and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a minor downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web space hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
