A review of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain and web hosting vendor. Hence we think that this short assessment of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very useful for other individuals from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all over the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in Great Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing virtually the whole Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Web Page Hosting Solutions

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the low prices of the shared web site hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting packages provided by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house developed, cutting edge cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an individual group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting company on the Earth will have enormous troubles with, since cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, website hosting Control Panel, disk storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based hosting vendors are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to design their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared hosting packages, which are driven by an actual cloud hosting system. With a shared hosting package, each customer pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the price amazingly low (because multiple customers use the same hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a high-end webspace hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page expands. Hence, you save cash that you can invest in promoting the website while it is still brand new. Each and every hosting account provided by 'Lonex' ships with an online web site builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design solutions. 'Lonex' furnishes shared website hosting accounts in a number of different countries around the World. There is one server farm facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; two European datacenters - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific region. Hence, practically the entire World is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting solution at a nearby place. As a whole, the shared hosting solutions delivered 'Lonex' are very well furnished and come at a very affordable price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a virtual hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States data center in Chicago. Handling these plans is similar to administering a regular shared hosting account via a web hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge site builder and a web application installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server web hosting package is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared to the shared site hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared site hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not arrive with full server root access (we, at, consider this a little inconvenience), but the benefit is that they are managed via the very same web space hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared packages. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all customers who do not have enough confidence to handle a private virtual server, but at the same time require more power and resources than a virtual web server can furnish them with. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the reserves of the same powerful avant-garde web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the VPS web hosting servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be labeled as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online shops with 1000s of customers request a much more powerful site hosting environment. It seems that the fellows from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its clients' expectations, 'Lonex' provides a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specifications the hosting servers boast: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable work of any kind of web site. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding web sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts delivered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for initiating a hosting reseller business as every server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a minor negative point, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of help, the Managed Services upgrade provides an assortment of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A handful of web site hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb point-and-click File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will possibly make the recourse to any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
