An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we believe that this brief evaluation of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be quite useful for other individuals from all over the World who are searching for domain name and web hosting services. We state folks from all around the Globe, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous server farm facility locations: in the USA (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing nearly the entire World. At least from the point of view of the World Wide Web. So, here is what you could expect from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Webspace Hosting Services

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the low prices of the shared webspace hosting services delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web page hosting accounts furnished by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house built, ultramodern cloud web hosting solution (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being served by an independent group of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor in the World will have great difficulties with, because cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on one single server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel hosting vendors cannot include extra functionality and handle it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to construct their own file platform), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web site hosting packages, which are powered by an authentic cloud web hosting system. With a shared web page hosting plan, each customer pays just for his/her account, thus keeping the web hosting price amazingly low (since a lot of customers are located on the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you really require, avoiding a situation where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a small web site hosting plan that cannot shelter your website. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with only two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to start with a basic package and upgrade as your site expands. So, you save funds that you can expend on promoting the web page while it is still brand new. Every web space hosting package furnished by 'Lonex' contains an online website building tool and more than 40 widely used script-driven software applications among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design solutions. 'Lonex' distributes shared web hosting packages in a number of different regions around the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European server farms - in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific region. That way, almost the entire Globe is covered to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable website hosting service at a desired location. On the whole, the shared hosting services furnished 'Lonex' are quite well equipped and come at a very reasonable price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual private web server may seem complicated to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated web servers in its main United States datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to managing a standard shared web page hosting plan through a webspace hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared website hosting package such as a free-of-cost web site builder and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources typical of a semi-dedicated web hosting plan is many times larger than that of a shared web site hosting account. For example, the CPU power that can be utilized is about FIVE times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When contrasted with a shared hosting plan, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted Top-Level Domain quota is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated web server hosting packages do not arrive with full root-level access (we, at, think of this as a tiny minus), but the good point is that they are administered through the very same hosting Control Panel GUI as the shared web page hosting accounts. This suggests that a recognizable graphical interface is available to all clients who do not feel self-confident enough to administer a private virtual web hosting server, yet are in need of more power and system resources than a virtual hosting server can offer. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the system resources of the same powerful top-class web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private hosting server accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per server), while the private virtual servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be defined as being quite inexpensive (as far as price is concerned), commencing from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business portals or popular online storefronts with thousands of clients require a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It appears that the guys from 'Lonex' have drawn the same conclusion as well. To answer its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' provides a number of dedicated servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That estimation stands on the hardware specifications the hosting servers boast: Dual and Quad-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the fast and steady performance of any kind of site. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server configurations delivered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for establishing a hosting reseller business as each web hosting server provides free-of-cost invoicing transaction software platform and a free domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a minor problem, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you require backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes an array of extra services such as a regular backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A handful of webspace hosting CP (CP) user interfaces are available with each of the web hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prognosis is that the exceptional drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will perhaps render the use of any FTP client pointless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting CP and the unlimited hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
