An assessment of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we think that this concise assessment of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite useful for other folks from all around the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently distributes domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing virtually the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting services supplied 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 hosting packages delivered by 'Lonex' are powered by a custom developed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an individual set of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have mammoth difficulties with, because cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based web space hosting corporations are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must create 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 authentic clustered website hosting system. With a shared hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus preserving the site hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers utilize one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud website hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end web space hosting account that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end hosting plan that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you spare money that you can invest in publicizing the site while it is still brand new. Each and every site hosting package furnished by 'Lonex' comes with an online web site building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Lonex' furnishes shared website hosting accounts in a number of different countries across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the entire World is covered to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting service at a convenient place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages supplied 'Lonex' are quite well equipped and are available at an affordable price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual web hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal American server farm in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to handling a typical shared web site hosting account through a webspace hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared plan such as a fee-free web site builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting plans. When compared to a shared site hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not arrive with complete server root access (we, at, deem this a tiny disadvantage), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same Control Panel GUI as the shared site hosting plans. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical user interface is offered to all users who are not confident enough to handle a virtual web server, yet demand more power and features than a VPS web server can deliver. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers request a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' offers a collection of dedicated web hosting servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware configurations the hosting servers come with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will definitely ensure the fast and stable work of any type of website. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every server provides free-of-cost invoicing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor defect, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A bunch of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia site hosting CP will perhaps make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
