If you host your sites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they shall perform very fast and that the access speed to them will depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Nevertheless, this will not be the case in the event that the hosting machine has poor network connectivity or relies on a network card, which simply just cannot deal with high volume of site traffic. If this is the situation, it'll take a very long time for your websites to load if a lot of people open them concurrently or visitors might even see error messages. As a result you might lose customers as most probably many people won't return to your website if they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. This is why you must pay attention to the network components of any new server that you get and not just to the main hardware like Processor, Ram memory or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Web Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer you include gigabit network cards which are tested alongside all the other hardware components before and after any new machine is built so as to make sure that we will never employ a faulty part that could cause a problem at some point. We also take advantage of the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that could easily deal with enormous incoming and outbound traffic to any server, whilst any traffic that is not legitimate will be blocked and will not take up your system resources. The continuous access to the center is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all our servers, which means that your websites and applications will be up and running at top speed all the time.
