An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our current domain and web hosting supplier. Therefore we anticipate that this succinct review of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be very useful for other folks from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, since the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently distributes domain and hosting services in several datacenter facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing virtually the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Website Hosting Plans

The first thing we, at, have perceived is the budget prices of the shared website hosting plans provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting packages supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being run on an autonomous group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have enormous complications with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, web site hosting CP, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web site hosting firms are unable to add new functionality and manipulate it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to make their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting packages, which are driven by an authentic clustered webspace hosting platform. With a shared web space hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the web space hosting price amazingly low (since numerous customers are located on the same web hosting server). In brief, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a cloud website hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the reserves that you actually require, refraining from a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web site hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a small web space hosting package that cannot handle your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small plan and upgrade as your website expands. Hence, you economize cash that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Each website hosting plan delivered by 'Lonex' boasts an online web site building tool and more than forty popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Lonex' supplies shared webspace hosting packages in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago encompassing the United States and Canada; two European datacenters - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. Thus, approximately the whole Globe is encompassed to present you and your website's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a nearby place. On the whole, the shared hosting services supplied 'Lonex' are very well furnished and come at a very good price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Servers

To people with little or no experience, a VPS web hosting server may seem complicated to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated servers in its principal US datacenter in Chicago. Handling these packages is comparable to managing a typical shared website hosting package through a web page hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting package such as a fee-free web site builder and a PHP script installer, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated account is many times larger than that of a shared hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared web hosting accounts. When juxtaposed to a shared account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated web server packages do not include full root access (we, at, consider this a small inconvenience), but the good point is that they are administered via the same webspace hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web page hosting accounts. This means that a recognizable GUI is accessible by all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a virtual web hosting server, but at the same time need more power and supplies than a virtual server can offer. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-class hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the VPS web server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much bigger number (eighty to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being quite cheap (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' provides an array of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That estimate stands on the hardware specifications the dedicated web hosting servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of data storage and Gigabit network interface cards will no doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any kind of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server specifications furnished by 'Lonex' are also suitable for establishing a hosting reseller business as each web server offers free-of-charge billing software and a bonus domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated web hosting servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a small 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 provides a selection of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several web hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the amazing point-and-click File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably make the use of any FTP client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (yet the Hepsia web site hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $65.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
