In the event that you host your sites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they will perform very fast and that the access speed to them will depend solely on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Nevertheless, this is not going to be the case in the event that the server has poor network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply just cannot cope with high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it will take a very long time for your sites to load if many people open them simultaneously or visitors might even see error messages. Therefore you may lose visitors as most probably many people won't revisit your site in case they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. That is why you ought to pay attention to the network components of any new server that you buy and not only to the main hardware such as Processor, RAM or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Web Hosting
The dedicated servers hosting packages
we provide come with gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all other hardware parts before and after any new server is put together so as to make sure that we will never employ a faulty part which can cause an issue after some time. We also employ the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that could easily deal with massive inbound and outbound traffic to any hosting machine, whilst any traffic that's not legitimate will be blocked and won't take up your system resources. The continuous access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. By doing this we ensure the fast and reliable connection to all our servers, which means your websites and apps shall be functioning at top speed at all times.
