A survey of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. This is why we consider that this concise review of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other folks from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' presently supplies domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole Globe. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have observed is the budget prices of the shared hosting services supplied by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are powered by a custom created, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being tackled by an individual stack of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting distributors cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they must concoct their own file platform), 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 web space hosting platform. With a shared package, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus keeping the web site hosting price amazingly low (since many users are located on one and the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered website hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, precluding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web page hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic website hosting plan that cannot handle your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your web site expands. That way, you save money that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting account supplied by 'Lonex' boasts an online web site builder and more than forty popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' supplies shared web space hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, approximately the whole Earth is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a steady and dependable web hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Lonex' are really well equipped and come at a low-cost price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a VPS may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared site hosting plan through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting package such as a free website builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared hosting packages. When compared to a shared web hosting plan, the quota of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not include server root access (we, at, deem this a small drawback), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared plans. This hints that a known graphical user interface is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a virtual private web hosting server, but at the same time require more power and reserves than a virtual private web server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful top-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the private virtual web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be classified as being quite inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' demands, 'Lonex' provides a collection of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers boast: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the quick and stable work of any kind of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server packages furnished by 'Lonex' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server offers free invoicing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a slight drawback, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade provides several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A number of hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
