An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain and hosting distributor. Hence we consider that this succinct assessment of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the World in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the mere truth is that 'Lonex' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the entire Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Site Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have noticed is the reasonable prices of the shared web space hosting plans delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the website hosting plans furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by a custom built, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, such as email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being dealt with by an autonomous bunch of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have big problems with, since cPanel is a single server based web site hosting environment (each hosting service, such as email, databases, website hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting distributors are not able to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file system (they have to develop their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine cloud webspace hosting system. With a shared site hosting package, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web hosting price very low (because lots of clients use one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which runs on a clustered web site hosting solution, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a powerful web space hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny hosting package that cannot shelter your website. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you economize cash that you can expend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Each and every web site hosting account supplied by 'Lonex' sports an online site builder and more than forty popular script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' furnishes shared site hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European data center facilities - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, practically the entire World is covered to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting service at a convenient place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions offered 'Lonex' are quite well equipped and are available at a very reasonable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual private web server may appear complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main American data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a conventional shared web hosting plan through a Control Panel user interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting package such as a free website builder and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared website hosting packages. When compared with a shared website hosting package, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain allowance is a norm too. The semi-dedicated hosting server packages do not offer root-level access (we, at, consider this a little inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared web space hosting accounts. This goes to say that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all clients who are not self-confident enough to administer a VPS server, yet are in need of more power and supplies than a Virtual Private Server can bestow on them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful high-end servers as the ones which host the virtual hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the virtual hosting servers can reach a much greater number (80 to one hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, big sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web storefronts with 1000s of clients request a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' anticipations, 'Lonex' offers a selection of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specifications the web hosting servers arrive with: many-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will beyond doubt ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications provided by 'Lonex' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated web hosting server arrives with free invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade provides various extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A bouquet of web space hosting CP (CP) interfaces are available with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will perhaps make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia CP and the unlimited hosted domain quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
