A survey of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. Therefore we imagine that this short review of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Lonex' currently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm locations: in North America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thereby, embracing virtually the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Space Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have noted is the low prices of the shared site hosting solutions furnished by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting accounts provided by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house designed, innovative cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on an individual bunch of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting firm on the Globe will have immense predicaments with, since cPanel is a single server based site hosting environment (each web hosting service, like mail, databases, site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on one single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web page hosting providers are not able to add additional functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must construct their own file system), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are powered by a genuine cloud web site hosting system. With a shared site hosting account, each customer pays solely for his/her package, thus preserving the web space hosting price amazingly low (because many customers utilize the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a clustered web hosting solution, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you really demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for an advanced hosting package that you cannot truly use, or for a tiny web page hosting plan that cannot handle your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to commence with a tiny plan and upgrade as your web presence expands. Thus, you economize money that you can expend on advertising the web site while it is still novel. Every hosting account supplied by 'Lonex' offers an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web design solutions. 'Lonex' distributes shared hosting solutions in a number of different countries around the World. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; two European data centers - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, virtually the whole Earth is covered to supply you and your site's visitors with a stable and fast web space hosting solution at a convenient location. Altogether, the shared hosting solutions furnished 'Lonex' are quite well equipped and are available at a very affordable price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no practice, a VPS server may appear complicated to administer. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main US server farm in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to handling a standard shared website hosting plan through a web page hosting CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting package such as a fee-free site building tool and a script installation tool, but the system resource quota typical of a semi-dedicated web server hosting plan is many times greater than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly FIVE times as much as compared to the shared webspace hosting accounts. When compared with a shared website hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a trend too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not arrive with full root access (we, at, deem this a tiny drawback), but the advantage is that they are administered through the same web page hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web site hosting accounts. This hints that a user-friendly GUI is available to all clients who do not have enough self-condifence to handle a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and features than a virtual hosting server can furnish them with. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the very same powerful high-end hosting servers as the ones which host the VPS web server accounts, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), whereas the virtual private hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to a hundred and twenty per server). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Servers

In's opinion, big web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular online shops with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful website hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To meet its users' demands, 'Lonex' supplies a bouquet of dedicated servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That evaluation rests on the hardware specs the servers ship with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will no doubt ensure the fast and steady work of any type of site. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts offered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as each and every dedicated hosting server offers free invoicing transaction software platform and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a minor inconvenience, which can be amended by paying a monthly tax of $30.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes a few supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web space hosting Control Panel (CP) GUIs are offered with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the amazing point and click File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel will probably render the use of any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia site hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will beyond doubt make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
