A review of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this brief assessment of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say individuals from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Lonex' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple datacenter facility sites: in the United States (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, encompassing practically the whole World. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Website Hosting Accounts

The first thing we, at, have noted is the inexpensive prices of the shared site hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web page hosting packages offered by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house designed, avant-garde cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an autonomous pack of servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting corporation in the World will have colossal difficulties with, since cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting distributors are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to set up their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared web site hosting accounts, which are powered by an authentic clustered webspace hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays just for his/her plan, thus retaining the website hosting price really low (since plenty of customers share one and the same hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting system, allows you to pay solely for the reserves that you indeed demand, averting a scenario where you pay for a high-end website hosting package that you cannot actually use, or for a low-end web site hosting plan that cannot host your web site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 mouse clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you save funds that you can spend on advertising the website while it is still brand new. Each web site hosting package delivered by 'Lonex' boasts an online site building tool and more than forty popular script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Lonex' provides shared web page hosting solutions in several different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data centers - in the UK and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Thus, approximately the whole World is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and reliable web page hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting accounts furnished 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and are available at an affordable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little or no experience, a virtual server may appear difficult to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its principal US datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these accounts is comparable to managing a standard shared hosting plan through a CP user interface. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web app installation tool, but the system resource quota provided by a semi-dedicated 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 used is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting plans. When contrasted with a shared web site hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a rule as well. The semi-dedicated plans do not arrive with root privileges (we, at, consider this a little inconvenience), but the plus is that they are managed through the same site hosting Control Panel interface as the shared web space hosting accounts. This implies that a recognizable graphical environment is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, yet need more power and features than a VPS web server can give them. This is so due to the fact that the semi-dedicated hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful avant-garde servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private hosting server plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical server), whereas the VPS web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers furnished by 'Lonex' can be categorized as being very inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients require a much more powerful web site hosting solution. It appears that the guys from 'Lonex' have reached the same conclusion too. To fulfil its clients' needs, 'Lonex' offers an assortment of dedicated web hosting servers that can tackle millions of daily visits. That assessment stands on the hardware specs the web servers ship with: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, 2000 GB of web space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt guarantee the fast and steady work of any kind of website. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations supplied by 'Lonex' are also suitable for kickstarting a hosting reseller business as every web server provides free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a charge-free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a little problem, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you demand aid, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the superb point and click File Manager available in the Hepsia hosting CP will probably make the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol client futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will undoubtedly make you smile), starting from $65.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
