An evaluation of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and hosting distributor. Therefore we deem that this brief review of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very helpful for other people from all around the Globe in search for domain name and web hosting solutions. We state people from all over the World, because the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently provides domain and hosting services in numerous datacenter sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire planet. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Website Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have detected is the reasonable prices of the shared site hosting services delivered 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 hosting plans offered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house devised, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web page hosting CP, data storage, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a separate host of web hosting servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting firm in the World will have huge troubles with, because cPanel is a one single server based web site hosting platform (each hosting service, like email, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, disk space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web page hosting companies are unable to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must set up their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting accounts, which are powered by a genuine cloud website hosting platform. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus retaining the web site hosting price really low (since plenty of clients are located on one and the same web server). In short, a shared hosting package, which is being served by a clustered site hosting solution, enables you to pay just for the resources that you actually need, refraining from a situation where you pay for a high-end web space hosting plan that you cannot actually utilize, or for a small website hosting package that cannot shelter your web site. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with just 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your Internet presence expands. Thus, you save cash that you can expend on advertising the website while it is still novel. Every site hosting package provided by 'Lonex' comes with an online website builder and over 40 popular script software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you hundreds of dollars for site design services. 'Lonex' furnishes shared web site hosting solutions in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one datacenter facility in Chicago covering the US and Canada; two European datacenters - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. In this way, practically the entire planet is encompassed to supply you and your web page's visitors with a stable and dependable webspace hosting service at a nearby location. Altogether, the shared hosting packages furnished 'Lonex' are quite well stocked and are available at a budget price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To customers with little to no experience, a virtual web server may seem hard to manage. That's perhaps why 'Lonex' also stores semi-dedicated web hosting servers in its main United States data center facility in Chicago. Managing these packages is comparable to handling a normal shared account via a Control Panel interface. They have all the features of a shared plan such as a free-of-charge website building tool and a script installer, but the system resource quota offered by a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times larger than that of a shared site hosting package. For example, the central processing unit power that can be used is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared web site hosting packages. When matched against a shared site hosting account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is huge: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated web server accounts do not come with root access (we, at, deem this a little drawback), but the advantage is that they are managed through the very same site hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared web hosting packages. This indicates that a familiar GUI is offered to all users who are not confident enough to administer a virtual private web server, yet are in need of more power and features than a virtual server can furnish them with. This is like that owing to the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the resources of the same powerful high-class servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server packages, still, the number of the semi-dedicated servers is very low (somewhere between twenty to 30 per physical machine), while the VPS web servers can reach a much greater number (eighty to 120 per server). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, huge web pages such as social networks, community and business portals or popular web shops with thousands of customers request a much more powerful web page hosting solution. It seems that the guys from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To live up to its clients' needs, 'Lonex' offers a number of dedicated web servers that can cope with millions of daily visits. That assessment rests on the hardware specs the servers sport: multi-core processors, up to 4 gigabytes of RAM, 2000 GB of data storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly ensure the fast and stable work of any sort of website. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more system resource-demanding sites. We, from, consider that all dedicated server accounts furnished by 'Lonex' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each dedicated web hosting server ships with free-of-cost invoice transaction software platform and a free-of-cost domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web hosting servers offered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a minor downside, which can be adjusted by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you need help, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. An array of website hosting CP (CP) tools are available with each of the servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb point and click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will possibly render the use of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting CP and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will no doubt make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
