A survey of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we believe that this succinct assessment of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be very helpful for other folks from all around the World who seek domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in America (Chicago, IL), in Britain (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, covering practically the entire World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have discerned is the low-cost prices of the shared website hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the webspace hosting plans furnished by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house developed, modern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, site hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being served by an autonomous host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Globe will have enormous problems with, since cPanel is a one single server based webspace hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting distributors are not able to include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file system (they have to build their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic cloud site hosting system. With a shared web site hosting plan, each client pays only for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web hosting price really low (since multiple users are located on the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web site hosting system, permits you to pay only for the resources that you actually need, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web space hosting account that you cannot actually utilize, or for a basic web hosting package that cannot handle your site. The option to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny plan and upgrade as your website grows. So, you spare cash that you can spend on publicizing the web page while it is still new. Every hosting package provided by 'Lonex' offers an online site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Lonex' provides shared webspace hosting services in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. That way, virtually the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your visitors with a steady and reliable website hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting packages provided 'Lonex' are really well appointed and are available at a budget price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To clients with little to no experience, a virtual web hosting server may appear problematic to handle. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal US server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to administering a standard shared webspace hosting account via a website hosting Control Panel tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting server account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting package. For example, the CPU power that can be used is approximately FIVE times as much as compared to the shared website hosting accounts. When matched against a shared plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name allowance is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated server web hosting accounts do not offer full server root access (we, at, consider this a minor inconvenience), but the plus is that they are managed via the same web space hosting CP interface as the shared web space hosting packages. This signifies that a known graphical interface is offered to all clients who are not confident enough to administer a VPS, yet require more power and reserves than a VPS hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that due to the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful first-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS hosting packages, however, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), whereas the virtual web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being very affordable (as far as cost is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, large web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or famous web stores with 1000s of customers demand a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the folks from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To live up to its users' requirements, 'Lonex' offers a collection of dedicated servers that can handle millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the web servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and steady performance of any type of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'Lonex' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server ships with free invoicing transaction software platform and a complimentary domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a small minus, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you require assistance, the Managed Services upgrade provides a selection of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager available in the Hepsia CP will perhaps make the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia site hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
