An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain and hosting vendor. Hence we think that this brief review of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing approximately the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the modest prices of the shared web page hosting accounts provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting plans provided by 'Lonex' are powered by a custom designed, modern cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on an independent stack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Earth will have immense complications with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web space hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web hosting corporations are unable to add new 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 precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud website hosting platform. With a shared website hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus retaining the hosting price very low (since a lot of customers are located on the same web hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered web hosting platform, enables you to pay solely for the reserves that you really demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting plan that you cannot really utilize, or for a small hosting account that cannot accommodate your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you spare capital that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still novel. Each and every web hosting plan delivered by 'Lonex' offers an online site building tool and over forty widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Lonex' supplies shared site hosting packages in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Hence, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and reliable web page hosting service at a convenient place. As a whole, the shared hosting services provided 'Lonex' are really well equipped and come at a budget price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US data center facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to administering a standard shared web site hosting account through a web site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared hosting plan such as a free-of-cost website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not come with complete root-level access (we, at, regard this as a slight downside), but the advantage is that they are managed via the same website hosting Control Panel interface as the shared webspace hosting plans. This signifies that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual web server, yet need more power and resources than a virtual hosting server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual web server hosting packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being very 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 sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients demand a much more powerful web hosting platform. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To meet its users' needs, 'Lonex' offers an array of dedicated servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers arrive with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server plans offered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web server provides free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a small drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager available in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
