A survey of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting distributor. Hence we suppose that this brief assessment of 'Lonex' is probably going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Page Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have spotted is the affordable prices of the shared webspace hosting packages offered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the website hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house built, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being tackled by an autonomous host of hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor on the Earth will have colossal predicaments with, because cPanel is a one single server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, etc., is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel-based site hosting corporations are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must set up their own file platform), which is the prerequisite of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web hosting packages, which are driven by a genuine clustered hosting platform. With a shared site hosting account, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the website hosting price amazingly low (because many customers are located on one and the same hosting server). In a nutshell, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a clustered webspace hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually need, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced web space hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a tiny package and upgrade as your web presence grows. Hence, you save funds that you can invest in promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each web hosting package offered by 'Lonex' contains an online website building tool and over forty popular script software applications including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Lonex' delivers shared web page hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, nearly the entire Globe is encompassed to provide you and your web page's visitors with a steady and fast web space hosting service at a nearby place. All in all, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Lonex' are very well appointed and are available at a low-cost price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To people with little or no experience, a Virtual Private Server may seem problematic to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal North American data center in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a regular shared web page hosting package through a webspace hosting CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared plan such as a free web site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting server account is many times bigger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared to the shared hosting plans. When matched against a shared webspace hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain quota is a norm too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting plans do not include full root access (we, at, think of this as a slight weak point), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same CP GUI as the shared web space hosting packages. This hints that a familiar graphical environment is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual server, yet demand more power and resources than a virtual private hosting server can supply them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very same powerful first-rate web servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual private web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web stores with thousands of clients request a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It appears that the folks from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To answer its users' anticipations, 'Lonex' provides an array of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers include: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will definitely ensure the quick and stable work 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 configurations provided by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every web server ships with free-of-charge invoice transaction software platform and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a slight disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers several supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. A bunch of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the exceptional point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol software futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Optima 01 package.
