A review of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we think that this concise evaluation of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter sites: in America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have noticed is the budget prices of the shared webspace hosting services delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the web hosting plans furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house created, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being tackled by a different group of servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting corporation on the Globe will have huge problems with, because cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., runs on one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based 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 need to build their own file platform), which is the premise of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered website hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting account, each customer pays only for his/her plan, thus preserving the web site hosting price really low (since lots of clients are located on one and the same server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud site hosting system, enables you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny webspace hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to commence with a low-end package and upgrade as your web site grows. That way, you spare cash that you can spend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Each and every hosting plan provided by 'Lonex' comprises an online website building tool and over forty popular script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web site design services. 'Lonex' supplies shared hosting solutions in a number of different countries across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, virtually the entire planet is covered to present you and your visitors with a stable and dependable web hosting service at a preferred location. All in all, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Lonex' are really well appointed and come at a very low price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a Virtual Private Server may appear problematic to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to administering a conventional shared site hosting package via a hosting CP interface. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting plan such as a free-of-charge website builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be used is almost FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When compared with a shared web space hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting packages is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a principle too. The semi-dedicated hosting server accounts do not come with full server root access (we, at, think of this as a tiny inconvenience), but the advantage is that they are administered through the very same website hosting CP GUI as the shared packages. This suggests that a user-friendly graphical user interface is available to all users who do not have enough confidence to handle a virtual private web server, yet demand more power and system resources than a private virtual server can confer to them. This is so owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful high-end web servers as the ones which host the VPS web server hosting accounts, however, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much higher number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online stores with 1000s of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting platform. It appears that the blokes from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To live up to its customers' demands, 'Lonex' offers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can manage millions of daily hits. That estimate rests on the hardware specs the hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the quick and stable performance of any kind of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server packages provided by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server ships with free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a cost-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated web servers furnished by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, count this as a small disadvantage, which can be corrected by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you demand backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers a number of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. Several web space hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the remarkable drag and drop File Manager included in the Hepsia web site hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
