A survey of Lonex

We, at, have selected 'Lonex' to be our present domain and web hosting distributor. Therefore we presume that this brief evaluation of 'Lonex' is maybe going to be very helpful for other people from all over the Globe in need of domain name and web hosting solutions. We say people from all around the Globe, since the mere fact is that 'Lonex' presently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple server farm facility sites: in North America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Sweden (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). That way, encompassing approximately the entire Globe. At least as far as the World Wide Web is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Lonex' in a nutshell:

Shared Hosting Accounts

The initial detail we, at, have perceived is the affordable prices of the shared site hosting accounts delivered by 'Lonex'. Shared doesn't sound very well, does it? Well, that's what it is referred to as: shared web hosting. The good thing here is that the web space hosting packages delivered by 'Lonex' are driven by an in-house developed, advanced cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, such as mail, databases, hosting CP, web space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by a different stack of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance ANY cPanel web hosting firm on the Earth will have colossal problems with, because cPanel is a single server based web space hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, site hosting CP, data storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by a single server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based website hosting firms cannot add extra 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 at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's return to the shared website hosting accounts, which are driven by a genuine cloud hosting system. With a shared web site hosting package, each client pays only for his/her package, thus maintaining the site hosting price very low (since plenty of customers share the same hosting server). In a few words, a shared hosting plan, which runs on a cloud web hosting platform, permits you to pay solely for the resources that you indeed demand, refraining from a scenario where you pay for a powerful web page hosting plan that you cannot truly utilize, or for a basic webspace hosting package that cannot host your web page. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with just 2 clicks of the mouse gives you the flexibility to start with a tiny package and upgrade as your web page grows. Thus, you save capital that you can spend on publicizing the site while it is still novel. Every web space hosting package supplied by 'Lonex' ships with an online web site builder and more than 40 popular script platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will spare you hundreds of dollars for website design solutions. 'Lonex' furnishes shared hosting services in a number of different geographical regions around the Globe. There is one server farm in Chicago encompassing the USA and Canada; 2 European datacenter facilities - in Great Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. That way, almost the entire Earth is encompassed to supply you and your website's visitors with a stable and reliable web space hosting service at a convenient location. On the whole, the shared hosting accounts supplied 'Lonex' are really well furnished and are available at a very modest price (starting from $3.95 for the Personal package).

Semi-dedicated Servers

To users with little or no experience, a private virtual web server may seem hard to administer. That's probably why 'Lonex' also houses semi-dedicated hosting servers in its principal American datacenter facility in Chicago. Managing these plans is comparable to managing a regular shared web site hosting plan via a web site hosting Control Panel interface. They have all the specs of a shared site hosting package such as a fee-free web site builder and a script installer, but the amount of system resources provided by a semi-dedicated hosting plan is many times bigger than that of a shared web page hosting package. For instance, the central processing unit power that can be utilized is nearly 5 times as much as compared with the shared website hosting accounts. When contrasted with a shared webspace hosting package, the number of database queries included within the semi-dedicated hosting accounts is vast: 90 000 / hour. An unlimited hosted domain name allowance is a norm as well. The semi-dedicated hosting server plans do not come with full root access (we, at, consider this a small inconvenience), but the plus is that they are managed through the same site hosting CP user interface as the shared website hosting packages. This hints that a user-friendly GUI is accessible by all customers who do not have enough self-condifence to manage a virtual hosting server, but at the same time demand more power and system resources than a virtual server can furnish them with. This is like that because of the fact that the semi-dedicated servers share the resources of the same powerful leading edge hosting servers as the ones which accommodate the virtual private web server plans, still, the number of the semi-dedicated web servers is very small (somewhere between 20 to 30 per physical server), while the VPS web servers can reach a much greater number (80 to a hundred and twenty per physical machine). Having that info in mind, the semi-dedicated servers offered by 'Lonex' can be labeled 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, enormous websites such as social networks, community and corporate web portals or famous web shops with thousands of customers call for a much more powerful web space hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'Lonex' have arrived at the same conclusion too. To answer its clients' requirements, 'Lonex' offers an assortment of dedicated web servers that can tackle millions of daily hits. That assessment stands on the hardware configurations the dedicated web servers sport: multi-core processors, up to four GB of RAM, two thousand gigabytes of storage space and Gigabit network interface cards will beyond doubt guarantee the quick and stable performance of any sort of web site. In 'Lonex's opinion, the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring web sites. We, from, deem that all dedicated server solutions furnished by 'Lonex' are also suitable for beginning a hosting reseller business as every dedicated server ships with free invoice transaction software and a complimentary domain reseller account. Unlickily, the dedicated servers supplied by 'Lonex' are all unmanaged. We, at, consider this a slight inconvenience, which can be righted by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $30.00 USD. So, if you need backing, the Managed Services upgrade includes several supplementary services such as a routine backup, software installation, web hosting server surveillance and troubleshooting procedures. Several site hosting CP (CP) interfaces are offered with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our ('s) prediction is that the splendid drag-and-drop File Manager included in the Hepsia webspace hosting CP will probably render the recourse to any File Transfer Protocol software program futile. Our ('s) inference is that the dedicated servers delivered by 'Lonex' don't seem to be very affordably priced (yet the Hepsia webspace hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain quotas will definitely make you smile), beginning from $40.00 for the Optima 01 package.
