A review of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain name and web hosting vendor. Therefore we expect that this brief review of 'Lonex' is perchance going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state folks from all around the World, because the mere fact is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in several data center facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, embracing nearly the whole planet. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in brief:

Shared Web Hosting Packages

The first thing we, at, have noted is the low prices of the shared hosting plans provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house created, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, webspace hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a separate set of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have enormous complications with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on a single hosting server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel web space hosting firms are not able to include new functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to build their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web space hosting plans, which are driven by a real clustered website hosting platform. With a shared plan, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the price really low (since multiple clients use the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is hosted on a clustered web space hosting solution, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed need, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a powerful site hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web hosting package that cannot shelter your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to begin with a small plan and upgrade as your online presence grows. Thus, you economize capital that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each website hosting plan supplied by 'Lonex' ships with an online website builder and more than forty widely used script software platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Lonex' delivers shared web site hosting solutions in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. In this way, practically the entire Globe is encompassed to provide you and your site's visitors with a stable and dependable web site hosting service at a desired place. Altogether, the shared hosting packages offered 'Lonex' are very well stocked and come at a budget price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no practice, a VPS web hosting server may seem tough to administer. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to managing a typical shared hosting package via a web space hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared website hosting account such as a free-of-cost site builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated server hosting package is many times greater than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared to the shared web hosting packages. When juxtaposed to a shared website hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name quota is a standard as well. The semi-dedicated web hosting server plans do not offer server root access (we, at, count this as a minor minus), but the benefit is that they are managed through the very same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web space hosting packages. This goes to say that a familiar graphical interface is offered to all clients who do not have enough confidence to manage a virtual web server, yet need more power and supplies than a virtual web hosting server can supply them with. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful cutting edge web servers as the ones which host the private virtual server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), while the VPSs can reach a much bigger number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

According to, enormous web sites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with 1000s of customers require a much more powerful web hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion as well. To meet its customers' needs, 'Lonex' supplies an array of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That estimate is based on the hardware specs the dedicated servers come with: many-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will doubtlessly ensure the fast and stable performance of any type of site. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, believe that all dedicated server configurations provided by 'Lonex' are also suitable for setting up a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server includes free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a little drawback, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade provides a few extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An assortment of web site hosting Control Panel (CP) interfaces are available with each of the hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the excellent point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very cheap (still the Hepsia web page hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
