An assessment of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we anticipate that this succinct review of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other individuals from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, since the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently provides domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Plans

The first detail we, at, have observed is the cut-rate prices of the shared web page hosting solutions provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the hosting accounts furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house devised, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on an individual stack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have enormous complications with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, like mail, databases, CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web site hosting companies are unable to add extra functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting accounts, which are driven by an authentic cloud website hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus preserving the site hosting price really low (since numerous users share the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed require, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small hosting account that cannot host your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. In this way, you save cash that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Every web hosting account delivered by 'Lonex' sports an online site builder and over 40 popular script platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' supplies shared web page hosting packages in several different countries across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farms - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole World is covered to present you and your web site's visitors with a steady and fast site hosting service at a preferred location. As a whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'Lonex' are really well stocked and come at an excellent price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual private web hosting server may seem hard to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American server farm in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to administering a standard shared web site hosting plan via a web space hosting Control Panel user interface. They have all the features of a shared website hosting package such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When compared to a shared hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is big: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not arrive with server root access (we, at, regard this as a slight weak point), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting accounts. This suggests that a known graphical environment is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a private virtual web server, yet demand more power and system resources than a virtual hosting server can supply them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful cutting edge web servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual web hosting server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be defined as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular online shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful website hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' expectations, 'Lonex' offers a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable work of any kind of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specs furnished by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server provides free-of-charge billing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a slight inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bouquet of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps render the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
