An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and hosting provider. Therefore we anticipate that this succinct assessment of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite useful for other people from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently offers domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Space Hosting Plans

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the low prices of the shared web page hosting solutions supplied 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 hosting accounts offered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house created, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on an autonomous set of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have enormous predicaments with, since cPanel is a one single server based site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being dealt with by one single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web space hosting vendors are not able to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they must develop their own file system), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared site hosting packages, which are powered by a real clustered web space hosting system. With a shared website hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the web hosting price really low (because plenty of users are located on one and the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud webspace hosting system, permits you to pay only for the reserves that you really demand, evading a situation where you pay for a feature-rich hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot host your web page. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a small plan and upgrade as your site expands. Thus, you save money that you can expend on publicizing the website while it is still new. Every web hosting account furnished by 'Lonex' ships with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Lonex' distributes shared website hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European data centers - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Hence, virtually the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your visitors with a steady and reliable site hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and are available at a low-cost price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal United States server farm facility in Chicago. Handling these accounts is comparable to managing a conventional shared web page hosting account via a Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For instance, the CPU power that can be used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared web page hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting plans do not ship with full server root access (we, at, regard this as a small weak point), but the advantage is that they are administered via the same web space hosting CP user interface as the shared web site hosting accounts. This hints that a known graphical environment is offered to all users who are not self-confident enough to handle a private virtual web server, yet demand more power and reserves than a private virtual hosting server can bestow on them. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the very same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be labeled as being amazingly cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers need a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' provides a selection of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation stands on the hardware specs the dedicated servers include: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady performance of any kind of web site. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Lonex' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server arrives with free-of-cost billing software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a little defect, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. An array of site hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the impressive drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will probably render the recourse to any FTP software pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Optima 01 package.
