A review of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting vendor. Hence we suppose that this brief assessment of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be very useful for other people from all over the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all around the World, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing approximately the entire planet. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Packages

The initial thing we, at, have spotted is the budget prices of the shared site hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting packages supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house created, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, data storage, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an individual group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have colossal complications with, since cPanel is a single server based webspace hosting environment (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being served by one and the same hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based webspace hosting companies are not able to add additional functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to build their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud webspace hosting system. With a shared site hosting package, each customer pays only for his/her account, thus maintaining the hosting price really low (since a lot of users use the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which runs on a cloud website hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, refraining from a situation where you pay for a high-end web hosting account that you cannot actually use, or for a tiny web page hosting account that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only 2 clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a basic plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. So, you economize capital that you can invest in advertising the web site while it is still brand new. Each hosting account provided by 'Lonex' boasts an online website building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design services. 'Lonex' furnishes shared web space hosting plans in a number of different geographical regions across the World. There is one datacenter in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole Globe is covered to provide you and your website's visitors with a steady and dependable webspace hosting solution at a convenient place. All in all, the shared hosting services delivered 'Lonex' are very well equipped and come at an affordable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To people with little to no practice, a private virtual web hosting server may appear troublesome to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its principal United States server farm in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to managing a conventional shared site hosting package through a web site hosting CP tool. They have all the functionalities of a shared web space hosting plan such as a free website builder and a PHP script installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is approximately FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When matched against a shared webspace hosting plan, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a pattern as well. The semi-dedicated web server plans do not ship with complete root-level access (we, at, think that this is a little drawback), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same web page hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web page hosting accounts. This indicates that a known graphical interface is accessible by all clients who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and supplies than a virtual hosting server can furnish them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced servers as the ones which host the VPS hosting plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to a hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being amazingly affordable (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Servers

According to, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate portals or famous online storefronts with thousands of clients need a much more powerful web site hosting platform. It seems that the folks from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion too. To live up to its clients' demands, 'Lonex' offers a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That estimate is based on the hardware configurations the web servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of site. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-demanding websites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server plans provided by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as every hosting server offers free invoice transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a slight disadvantage, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bunch of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of web hosting Control Panel (CP) user interfaces are offered with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the superb point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any FTP software program futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very modestly priced (yet the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
