An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we suppose that this succinct review of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all over the World who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state people from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, covering practically the entire Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have observed is the modest prices of the shared webspace hosting packages provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good thing here is that the web site hosting accounts provided by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on an individual bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have enormous problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web page hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on a single server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel webspace hosting corporations are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they need to design their own file system), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic cloud site hosting solution. With a shared hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her account, thus maintaining the price amazingly low (since lots of customers share one and the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting solution, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you actually demand, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced web hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a small website hosting plan that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small plan and upgrade as your web page expands. So, you save funds that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Each website hosting package provided by 'Lonex' sports an online web site building tool and over 40 popular script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' supplies shared web space hosting packages in a number of different regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, practically the whole Earth is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable site hosting solution at a convenient place. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Lonex' are quite well appointed and come at a budget price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a VPS web server may seem tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a normal shared web hosting plan via a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared site hosting plan such as a free web site building tool and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server package is many times bigger than that of a shared hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared site hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted TLD allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not include complete root access (we, at, deem this a little defect), but the benefit is that they are managed through the same web page hosting CP tool as the shared web site hosting plans. This signifies that a familiar graphical environment is accessible by all users who do not feel confident enough to manage a private virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and features than a virtual server can supply them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS plans, however, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, large web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' requirements, 'Lonex' supplies a selection of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the dedicated hosting servers sport: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt guarantee the fast and stable performance of any type of web site. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every server ships with free-of-cost invoicing software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a small defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you demand support, the Managed Services upgrade provides a bouquet of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web page hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the remarkable point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia website hosting CP will perhaps render the use of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain allowance will beyond doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
