run by 'Lonex'

A survey of Lonex

We, at, have picked 'Lonex' to be our present domain and hosting distributor. This is why we deem that this concise evaluation of 'Lonex' is perhaps going to be quite helpful for other individuals from all around the Globe who need domain name and web hosting solutions. We state individuals from all over the World, because the mere truth is that 'Lonex' presently delivers domain and hosting services in numerous server farm sites: in the US (Chicago, IL), in the United Kingdom (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, covering almost the entire Globe. At least from the point of view of the Internet. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a few words:

Shared Web Page Hosting Packages

The initial detail we, at, have observed is the reasonable prices of the shared web space hosting plans provided by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the site hosting accounts furnished by 'Lonex' are powered by an in-house created, futuristic cloud web hosting solution (each hosting service, like electronic mail, databases, hosting Control Panel, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., runs on an independent bunch of web servers in a cluster). This is something ANY cPanel web hosting vendor in the World will have immense problems with, because cPanel is a single server based website hosting platform (each hosting service, such as electronic mail, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, storage space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being run on a single web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web site hosting corporations are unable to add extra functionality and manipulate it the way they need it) and there is no open source file platform (they must design their own file system), which is the precondition of any cloud web hosting service. Let's get back to the shared web page hosting packages, which are driven by an actual cloud web hosting system. With a shared site hosting plan, each client pays just for his/her package, thus maintaining the web site hosting price very low (because multiple customers are hosted on one and the same web hosting server). In short, a shared hosting plan, which is being served by a cloud web space hosting solution, allows you to pay only for the resources that you really demand, escaping a situation where you pay for an advanced web site hosting package that you cannot truly utilize, or for a low-end web hosting package that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one plan to another with only two mouse clicks gives you the flexibility to kick off with a tiny package and upgrade as your web site expands. Thus, you save capital that you can spend on publicizing the web site while it is still novel. Every site hosting package provided by 'Lonex' arrives with an online web site building tool and more than forty widely used script platforms like WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will economize you 100s of dollars for website design solutions. 'Lonex' delivers shared site hosting accounts in a number of different geographical regions across the Globe. There is one server farm facility in Chicago encompassing the US and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Great Britain and in Sweden; and another one in Australia, which covers the Asia Pacific. That way, approximately the whole Earth is covered to present you and your site's visitors with a stable and reliable website hosting solution at a desired location. All in all, the shared hosting plans delivered 'Lonex' are really well equipped and come at a very attractive price (beginning from $3.95 for the Personal plan).

Semi-dedicated Web Hosting Servers

To users with little or no practice, a VPS web server may appear difficult to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also hosts semi-dedicated web servers in its principal North American data center facility in Chicago. Administering these plans is comparable to administering a conventional shared website hosting account through a web site hosting CP interface. They have all the specs of a shared web space hosting account such as a fee-free web site builder and a web app installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting account is many times larger than that of a shared webspace hosting account. For example, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is about 5 times as much as compared with the shared packages. When matched against a shared website hosting plan, the quota of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is great: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted top-level domain name allowance is a rule too. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not come with root access (we, at, consider this a tiny drawback), but the benefit is that they are administered via the same website hosting Control Panel user interface as the shared hosting accounts. This goes to say that a recognizable graphical interface is offered to all users who do not feel self-confident enough to handle a VPS hosting server, yet need more power and supplies than a VPS web server can give them. This is like that because the semi-dedicated web servers share the reserves of the very same powerful hyper-advanced hosting servers as the ones which host the Virtual Private Server web hosting plans, yet, the number of the semi-dedicated web hosting servers is quite small (somewhere between twenty to thirty per physical machine), whereas the VPSs can reach a much higher number (80 to one hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be classified as being very inexpensive (as far as cost is concerned), starting from $30.00 for the Semi-dedicated Plus package.

Dedicated Web Hosting Servers

In's opinion, enormous web pages such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous online shops with thousands of clients need a much more powerful site hosting platform. It appears that the fellows from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion as well. To meet its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' supplies a selection of dedicated web hosting servers that can cope with millions of daily hits. That assessment rests on the hardware configurations the dedicated servers have: many-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk storage and Gigabit network cards will undoubtedly guarantee the fast and stable performance of any kind of website. According to 'Lonex', the original hardware specifications can be upgraded for more system resource-requiring websites. We, from, think that all dedicated server specifications supplied by 'Lonex' are also appropriate for beginning a hosting reseller business as every hosting server provides free-of-cost invoice transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unfortunately, the dedicated hosting servers provided by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, deem this a tiny problem, which can be amended by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a handful of supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, server surveillance and troubleshooting operations. A selection of webspace hosting Control Panel (CP) tools are offered with each of the dedicated hosting servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the magnificent point and click File Manager added in the Hepsia website hosting CP will probably make the use of any File Transfer Protocol client useless. Our ('s) conclusion is that the dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very low priced (yet the Hepsia web space hosting Control Panel and the unlimited hosted domain allowance will doubtlessly make you smile), commencing from $40.00 for the Optima 01 plan.
