A survey of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain and hosting provider. This is why we imagine that this short review of 'Lonex' is probably going to be very helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Lonex' currently offers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing almost the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have detected is the modest prices of the shared hosting accounts furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house developed, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being run on an autonomous bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have considerable troubles with, because cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based webspace hosting companies are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must design their own file system), which is the foundation of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by a real cloud webspace hosting solution. With a shared webspace hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the web space hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of customers are located on the same hosting server). In short, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud site hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed need, evading a situation where you pay for a powerful webspace hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web space hosting account that cannot host your website. The option to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page expands. In this way, you save money that you can spend on promoting the website while it is still novel. Each web site hosting account furnished by 'Lonex' arrives with an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for site design solutions. 'Lonex' distributes shared web hosting services in several different regions across the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, nearly the entire planet is encompassed to present you and your web site's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting packages furnished 'Lonex' are really well furnished and are available at a very good price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To users with little to no experience, a virtual hosting server may seem complicated to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American server farm in Chicago. Managing these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared hosting plan through a web space hosting CP tool. They have all the features of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server hosting packages do not offer root-level access (we, at, think that this is a tiny weakness), but the good point is that they are managed through the very same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web hosting packages. This suggests that a well-known GUI is accessible by all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a virtual web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and system resources than a VPS web server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful ultramodern web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the private virtual hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of clients demand a much more powerful webspace hosting platform. It appears that the folks from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' needs, 'Lonex' provides a selection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the dedicated hosting servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand GB of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will definitely guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server specs delivered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for starting a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated server offers free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a slight weak point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web page hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the outstanding drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP software useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will definitely make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Optima 01 package.
