An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this short review of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all over the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently supplies domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing almost the whole World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The initial thing we, at, have perceived is the reasonable prices of the shared web site hosting solutions furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by a custom devised, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by an individual set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting provider in the World will have considerable difficulties with, because cPanel is a one single server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web space hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting providers are not able to add new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to invent their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by a genuine cloud web hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting account, each client pays only for his/her account, thus retaining the website hosting price very low (since plenty of customers are located on one and the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting system, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really require, averting a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web page hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny website hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you spare capital that you can expend on advertising the site while it is still novel. Every site hosting package supplied by 'Lonex' arrives with an online website building tool and more than forty popular script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lonex' supplies shared site hosting accounts in a number of different regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. Hence, almost the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and dependable hosting service at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Lonex' are quite well appointed and are available at a very good price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To clients with little or no experience, a VPS web server may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these packages is comparable to administering a conventional shared web space hosting plan via a web space hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting package such as a free-of-charge website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting plans. When compared with a shared hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a trend as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting packages do not include root-level access (we, at, consider this a tiny negative point), but the benefit is that they are administered via the very same web page hosting Control Panel tool as the shared webspace hosting packages. This signifies that a known graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to administer a VPS hosting server, yet are in need of more power and resources than a virtual web server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the resources of the same powerful ultramodern hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the VPS servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be branded as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers require a much more powerful web hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' requirements, 'Lonex' delivers a number of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers sport: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of web space and Gigabit NICs will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any sort 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 specifications offered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each server provides free-of-cost billing transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a slight downside, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, web server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A selection of webspace hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the impressive point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web page hosting CP will possibly make the recourse to any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
