A review of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and web hosting provider. Hence we presume that this brief assessment of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the entire planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the low-cost prices of the shared site hosting services 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 site hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house created, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a separate bunch of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting provider on the Earth will have big predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web site hosting firms cannot add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must invent their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting accounts, which are driven by an actual cloud site hosting platform. With a shared web site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her package, thus keeping the site hosting price really low (since multiple customers use one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting package that you cannot really utilize, or for a small hosting account that cannot host your site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website grows. Thus, you save capital that you can spend on publicizing the website while it is still brand new. Each and every web site hosting account supplied by 'Lonex' comprises an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Lonex' distributes shared web site hosting services in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; two European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, nearly the whole World is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting plans supplied 'Lonex' are very well appointed and are available at a budget price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a private virtual hosting server may seem problematic to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main American data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is similar to administering a regular shared account through a Control Panel tool. They have all the specs of a shared website hosting plan such as a free site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared plan. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared web page hosting account, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting accounts do not arrive with root access (we, at, think of this as a minor weakness), but the good point is that they are administered via the very same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting accounts. This hints that a familiar graphical interface is accessible by all customers who do not feel confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, yet demand more power and system resources than a VPS hosting server can confer to them. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful first-class web servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual web server plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical machine), whereas the private virtual servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per physical server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be defined as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or popular web stores with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' needs, 'Lonex' offers an assortment of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers are offering: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly guarantee the fast and stable work of any sort of website. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as every web server arrives with free-of-cost billing software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a tiny inconvenience, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you need aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web page hosting CP (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the exceptional point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very modestly priced (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
