If you host your sites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they will perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them shall depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the site visitors. Having said that, this won't be the case if the hosting server has lousy network connectivity or relies on a network card, which just cannot cope with high volume of site traffic. If this is the situation, it will take a long time for your internet sites to load if a lot of people open them simultaneously or visitors may see error messages. Thus you may lose site visitors as in all probability many people won't return to your internet site in the event that they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. That is why you should pay attention to the network components of any new server that you acquire and not only to the main hardware which includes Central processing unit, Ram memory or hard disk.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated hosting we offer come with gigabit network cards which are tested along with all other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is put together in order to make sure that we won't use a faulty part that might cause an issue at some point. We also use the most current hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can cope with enormous inbound and outgoing traffic to any machine, while any traffic that's not legitimate will be blocked and will not use up your system resources. The continuous access to the center is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. By doing this we ensure the fast and reliable connection to all of our hosting machines, which means that your websites and apps will be working at top speed all the time.
