A survey of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. This is why we think that this concise review of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite helpful for other people from all over the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the World, because the simple fact is that 'Lonex' currently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple server farm locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing approximately the whole Earth. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have spotted is the affordable prices of the shared site hosting accounts offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans delivered by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house designed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting CP, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by an autonomous group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have huge predicaments with, since cPanel is a one-server based web hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting vendors are unable to include additional functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to set up their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by a real clustered webspace hosting system. With a shared plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the hosting price very low (because lots of customers are located on one and the same server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting plan, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed demand, precluding a situation where you pay for an advanced webspace hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web page hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic package and upgrade as your web site expands. Hence, you save cash that you can invest in advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each webspace hosting account provided by 'Lonex' offers an online site building tool and over forty widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web design services. 'Lonex' provides shared web page hosting services in a number of different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, approximately the entire Earth is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast web hosting solution at a desired place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts delivered 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and are available at a very cheap price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may seem difficult to handle. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main American datacenter in Chicago. Handling these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared web space hosting package via a CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web site hosting package such as a free website builder and a web app installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not arrive with root-level access (we, at, think that this is a slight downside), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same web space hosting Control Panel tool as the shared hosting accounts. This means that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all users who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a VPS web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and features than a virtual web server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful high-end web hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the virtual private web hosting servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be branded as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online stores with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion too. To meet its customers' expectations, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware configurations the servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server solutions offered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every hosting server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a slight weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you need assistance, the Managed Services upgrade includes various extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several web page hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel will possibly render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
