A survey of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and web hosting supplier. Therefore we expect that this concise evaluation of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the World, since the simple fact is that 'Lonex' currently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center locations: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have noticed is the cheap prices of the shared web hosting services delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house devised, cutting edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by a different host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based webspace hosting corporations are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared web site hosting plan, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus keeping the web site hosting price amazingly low (because multiple clients utilize one and the same server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich website hosting account that you cannot really use, or for a small webspace hosting plan that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your online presence grows. That way, you save money that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still brand new. Every site hosting plan supplied by 'Lonex' comprises an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lonex' offers shared web hosting solutions in several different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Thus, virtually the entire Globe is encompassed to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Lonex' are really well equipped and come at a very modest price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little or no practice, a VPS hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a regular shared site hosting account via a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting package such as a free site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server package is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web page hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated server plans do not ship with full server root access (we, at, deem this a tiny drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed through the same Control Panel GUI as the shared hosting accounts. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical interface is available to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a private virtual hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a virtual web server can offer. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful high-class hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per server), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be branded as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online stores with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful website hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To satisfy its customers' expectations, 'Lonex' offers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers are offering: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each server offers free invoicing software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a slight inconvenience, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
