A review of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting supplier. This is why we think that this succinct review of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting services. We say folks from all around the World, since the simple truth is that 'Lonex' presently offers domain and hosting services in several server farm facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, embracing practically the entire World. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in short:

Shared Web Hosting Solutions

The initial thing we, at, have detected is the modest prices of the shared web space hosting plans supplied by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared web hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting packages furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house built, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, stats, etc., is being tackled by a separate pack of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting company in the World will have huge problems with, since cPanel is a one-server based web site hosting environment (each web hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, data storage, DNS, statistics, and so on, is being handled by one and the same web hosting server), cPanel is not open source (that is why the cPanel web hosting providers cannot include new functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they need to set up their own file platform), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared webspace hosting plans, which are driven by an actual clustered web space hosting system. With a shared web space hosting account, each client pays solely for his/her account, thus keeping the web space hosting price very low (because numerous customers share the same server). In short, a shared hosting account, which runs on a cloud webspace hosting platform, enables you to pay just for the reserves that you really need, evading a situation where you pay for an advanced web hosting plan that you cannot actually use, or for a basic web page hosting plan that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to start with a small package and upgrade as your web page grows. Hence, you economize money that you can expend on advertising the web page while it is still new. Every webspace hosting account delivered by 'Lonex' contains an online site building tool and over 40 widely used script-driven platforms among them WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you 100s of dollars for web page design services. 'Lonex' supplies shared web space hosting plans in several different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one data center facility in Chicago covering the United States and Canada; 2 European data center facilities - in the UK and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia Pacific region. In this way, approximately the whole planet is encompassed to present you and your visitors with a steady and fast website hosting service at a desired place. All in all, the shared hosting solutions provided 'Lonex' are quite well furnished and are available at an excellent price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Hosting Servers

To users with little or no experience, a virtual hosting server may appear hard to manage. That's probably why 'Lonex' also keeps semi-dedicated web servers in its main North American datacenter in Chicago. Administering these accounts is similar to managing a standard shared website hosting package via a web site hosting Control Panel GUI. They have all the features of a shared webspace hosting account such as a free-of-charge site building tool and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources offered by a semi-dedicated hosting server plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting account. For instance, the CPU power that can be utilized is almost 5 times as much as compared with the shared hosting packages. When compared to a shared web page hosting package, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting plans is immense: 90 000 / hour. An unmetered hosted domain name quota is a trend too. The semi-dedicated hosting plans do not ship with full root privileges (we, at, count this as a little drawback), but the plus is that they are administered through the very same web space hosting Control Panel tool as the shared web page hosting plans. This signifies that a familiar graphical user interface is available to all customers who do not have enough confidence to administer a virtual private hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a private virtual web hosting server can provide them with. This is so because of the fact that the semi-dedicated web servers share the system resources of the very same powerful first-rate web hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the Virtual Private Server web hosting packages, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated hosting servers is very low (somewhere between 20 to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPS hosting servers can reach a much bigger number (80 to 120 per physical machine). Having that information in mind, the semi-dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' can be dubbed as being very cheap (as far as price is concerned), beginning from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Hosting Servers

According to, large web sites such as social networks, community and business web portals or popular web storefronts with thousands of customers demand a much more powerful webspace hosting environment. It seems that the folks from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To answer its users' needs, 'Lonex' offers a bouquet of dedicated hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That evaluation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers include: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will undoubtedly ensure the fast and steady performance of any sort of website. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specs provided by 'Lonex' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each web server arrives with free billing software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, think that this is a minor weakness, which can be rectified by paying a monthly fee of $30.00 USD. So, if you need support, the Managed Services upgrade offers a handful of extra services such as a routine backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting operations. An array of website hosting CP (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the superb drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will perhaps make the utilization of any FTP software program useless. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' don't appear to be very cheap (yet the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name allowance will no doubt make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
