An assessment of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain and web hosting distributor. This is why we think that this brief evaluation of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing almost the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Web Site Hosting Accounts

The first detail we, at, have seen is the budget prices of the shared hosting packages offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting accounts furnished by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house devised, advanced cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by a different group of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have huge troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel-based web space hosting firms are unable to add new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to invent their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the website hosting price very low (because plenty of users are located on one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud site hosting system, enables you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, avoiding a situation where you pay for a high-end web site hosting package that you cannot really use, or for a tiny web space hosting package that cannot host your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web page grows. In this way, you economize money that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still new. Every web page hosting account offered by 'Lonex' boasts an online website builder and more than 40 widely used script software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for site design services. 'Lonex' furnishes shared website hosting packages in several different countries around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data center facilities - in Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to supply you and your site's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting service at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting services offered 'Lonex' are very well appointed and are available at a good price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may seem troublesome to handle. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated servers in its main United States server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a standard shared hosting package via a web site hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web page hosting package such as a free site builder and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated plan is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not ship with full root-level access (we, at, deem this a tiny inconvenience), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same web hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web site hosting packages. This signifies that a well-known graphical user interface is accessible by all customers who are not self-confident enough to manage a virtual web server, but at the same time are in need of more power and reserves than a VPS web server can offer. This is so because the semi-dedicated servers share the system resources of the same powerful cutting edge servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual server hosting plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, huge websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of customers require a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' expectations, 'Lonex' provides a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the quick and steady work of any kind of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for launching a hosting reseller business as each and every web hosting server arrives with free-of-cost invoicing software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a tiny drawback, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a bunch of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional drag and drop File Manager available in the Hepsia web page hosting CP will probably make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
