A survey of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting vendor. Therefore we deem that this concise assessment of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We say people from all around the Globe, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' currently offers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering approximately the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting packages supplied by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the hosting plans offered by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house designed, futuristic cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by an individual group of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have great predicaments with, because cPanel is a one-server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting providers are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to develop their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting accounts, which are powered by an actual clustered web space hosting platform. With a shared web hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web hosting price amazingly low (since lots of clients are located on one and the same web server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a cloud web site hosting system, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting plan that you cannot really use, or for a small web page hosting plan that cannot accommodate your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you save funds that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still new. Each web site hosting account supplied by 'Lonex' contains an online site building tool and over 40 popular script platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Lonex' offers shared site hosting plans in several different regions around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. In this way, nearly the entire Globe is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable web page hosting solution at a nearby location. As a whole, the shared hosting accounts offered 'Lonex' are quite well equipped and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little to no experience, a private virtual hosting server may seem difficult to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Managing these plans is similar to administering a normal shared web site hosting account via a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the features of a shared web page hosting package such as a fee-free web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting plan. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly FIVE times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When juxtaposed to a shared web space hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not arrive with complete root access (we, at, consider this a tiny weak point), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting CP GUI as the shared website hosting packages. This means that a user-friendly graphical interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a VPS web server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a private virtual web server can offer. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be branded as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' needs, 'Lonex' supplies a number of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady work of any sort of website. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server solutions delivered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as every dedicated web server includes free invoicing transaction software and a free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a small disadvantage, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will perhaps make the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $65.00 for the Optima 01 package.
