An assessment of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this short assessment of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other folks from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering almost the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial thing we, at, have noted is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting plans delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web space hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom built, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, website hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an individual bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have big complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based hosting distributors are unable to add extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared website hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered web site hosting solution. With a shared web hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (since numerous clients use one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web hosting platform, permits you to pay only for the resources that you really need, precluding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web site hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a small web page hosting account that cannot shelter your site. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to begin with a tiny package and upgrade as your Internet presence grows. Hence, you save cash that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Each and every website hosting account provided by 'Lonex' arrives with an online web site builder and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lonex' supplies shared web hosting services in several different regions across the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European server farm facilities - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, practically the entire Globe is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web page hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages delivered 'Lonex' are really well stocked and are available at a very inexpensive price (beginning from $4.25 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little or no experience, a private virtual web hosting server may appear problematic to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated servers in its main United States data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared web site hosting account via a hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting account such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web app installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web hosting accounts do not include full root privileges (we, at, think of this as a tiny inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are managed via the very same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web hosting plans. This suggests that a well-known graphical interface is available to all users who are not confident enough to handle a Virtual Private Server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a private virtual web server can offer. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful first-class hosting servers as the ones which host the virtual private web hosting server accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be defined as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' expectations, 'Lonex' provides an assortment of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers have: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of data storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any type of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each dedicated server provides free invoicing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a minor disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes several additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the exceptional drag and drop File Manager offered by the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
