administered by 'Lonex'

A review of Lonex

We, at, have chosen 'Lonex' to be our current domain name and web hosting distributor. Hence we deem that this concise assessment of 'Lonex' is probably going to be quite helpful for other folks from all around the World who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We say folks from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently distributes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm sites: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the UK (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering practically the entire Earth. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The initial detail we, at, have perceived is the affordable prices of the shared hosting packages provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the web site hosting packages offered by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom designed, leading edge cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like email, databases, web hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, is being handled by an independent pack of servers in a cluster). This is something EVERY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have great difficulties with, since cPanel is a one-server based web space hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as email, databases, Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, and so on, runs on a single web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel web site hosting corporations are not able to include additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to concoct their own file platform), which is at the heart of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web page hosting plans, which are powered by an actual cloud website hosting system. With a shared webspace hosting package, each customer pays just for his/her plan, thus maintaining the web site hosting price amazingly low (since multiple customers use the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a clustered web page hosting system, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you actually demand, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich webspace hosting package that you cannot actually utilize, or for a low-end site hosting package that cannot shelter your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to kick off with a small package and upgrade as your web site expands. In this way, you spare money that you can invest in publicizing the website while it is still new. Each and every web space hosting account provided by 'Lonex' comprises an online website building tool and over 40 popular script-driven software platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Lonex' offers shared web page hosting packages in several different geographical regions around the World. There is one server farm in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European server farm facilities - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire Globe is covered to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast site hosting solution at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting accounts provided 'Lonex' are very well appointed and come at a good price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little to no practice, a virtual hosting server may appear difficult to handle. That's probably why 'Lonex' also offers semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American data center in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a conventional shared website hosting plan via a CP GUI. They have all the specs of a shared web hosting package such as a free site building tool and a web application installation tool, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated web hosting account is many times greater than that of a shared website hosting plan. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared to the shared web site hosting packages. When compared with a shared account, the number of database queries added within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is enormous: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted TLD quota is a principle as well. The semi-dedicated hosting accounts do not offer root-level access (we, at, consider this a slight minus), but the advantage is that they are managed via the very same webspace hosting CP GUI as the shared site hosting packages. This hints that a recognizable GUI is available to all users who do not feel confident enough to handle a VPS web server, yet need more power and resources than a VPS hosting server can provide them with. This is so because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the same powerful first-class servers as the ones which accommodate the private virtual server hosting accounts, still, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is quite low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the Virtual Private Servers can reach a much higher number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' can be branded as being amazingly affordable (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Web Servers

In's opinion, large web sites such as social networks, community and corporate portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of clients call for a much more powerful web page hosting environment. It appears that the blokes from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To satisfy its users' anticipations, 'Lonex' delivers a selection of dedicated web servers that can manage millions of daily visits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers are offering: many-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand GB of disk storage and Gigabit NICs will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and steady performance of any sort of site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs provided by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for setting up a hosting reseller business as every dedicated hosting server ships with free-of-cost invoicing transaction software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated web servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, regard this as a minor weak point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly tax which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a number of additional services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. A number of web page hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) forecast is that the great point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia hosting Control Panel will probably render the utilization of any File Transfer Protocol client pointless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very low priced (still the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will definitely make you smile), starting from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
