run by 'Lonex'

A survey of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain and hosting provider. This is why we think that this brief assessment of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be very useful for other people from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting solutions. We say individuals from all over the Globe, because the simple truth is that 'Lonex' currently delivers domain and hosting services in multiple data center locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing almost the whole Earth. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at, have perceived is the budget prices of the shared hosting services offered 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 hosting accounts supplied by 'Lonex' are driven by a custom invented, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each hosting service, like mail, databases, web site hosting CP, storage space, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being run on a different bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting distributor on the Earth will have mammoth troubles with, since cPanel is a one single server based web page hosting platform (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, runs on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (therefore the cPanel site hosting firms cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file platform), which is the basis of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared web hosting plans, which are driven by an authentic cloud hosting system. With a shared plan, each customer pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the site hosting price really low (since plenty of clients share one and the same server). In a few words, a shared hosting account, which is being served by a cloud web page hosting platform, allows you to pay only for the reserves that you indeed demand, avoiding a scenario where you pay for an advanced web hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a tiny web hosting package that cannot accommodate your web page. The ability to upgrade your account from one package to another with just two clicks of the mouse grants you the flexibility to commence with a basic package and upgrade as your web page expands. Thus, you save money that you can invest in promoting the web site while it is still new. Each web space hosting plan supplied by 'Lonex' contains an online web site builder and more than 40 widely used script-driven software platforms including WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web site design services. 'Lonex' delivers shared web page hosting accounts in several different countries around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European datacenters - in England and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia-Pacific region. Hence, approximately the entire World is encompassed to provide you and your web site's visitors with a stable and fast web hosting service at a desired location. Altogether, the shared hosting plans furnished 'Lonex' are very well appointed and are available at an attractive price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To clients with little to no practice, a virtual private web server may appear problematic to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated hosting servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Managing these packages is similar to administering a typical shared webspace hosting package through a webspace hosting CP interface. They have all the features of a shared website hosting account such as a free-of-cost website building tool and a PHP script installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated server hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is approximately 5 times as much as compared with the shared webspace hosting packages. When compared with a shared web space hosting account, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain allowance is a pattern too. The semi-dedicated server packages do not arrive with full root access (we, at, think that this is a little weakness), but the plus is that they are administered via the very same site hosting CP interface as the shared web hosting plans. This signifies that a user-friendly graphical environment is offered to all users who do not feel confident enough to administer a VPS web hosting server, but at the same time are in need of more power and resources than a virtual private web server can bestow on them. This is so because the semi-dedicated web hosting servers share the resources of the very 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 very small (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical server), while the virtual web hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be classified as being amazingly inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus plan.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, big websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful webspace hosting solution. It seems that the blokes from 'Lonex' have come to the same conclusion as well. To fulfil its customers' requirements, 'Lonex' offers an assortment of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment is based on the hardware specs the dedicated web servers come with: multi-core processors, up to 4 GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network cards will no doubt ensure the quick and steady work of any sort of website. According to 'Lonex', the primary hardware configurations can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server specs offered by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for commencing a hosting reseller business as each and every web server comes with free invoicing software platform and a free-of-charge domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated hosting servers delivered by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think of this as a tiny negative point, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you are in need of backing, the Managed Services upgrade offers various additional services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A bouquet of web hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent point-and-click File Manager offered by the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel will perhaps make the use of any FTP software futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very affordably priced (still the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
