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 shall depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the visitors. Having said that, this won't be the case in case the server has lousy network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply just cannot deal with high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it will take a long time for your websites to load if many people open them at the same time or visitors could see error messages. Consequently you might lose customers as most likely many people will not revisit your site if they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. This is why you need to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server that you purchase and not just to the main hardware like Processor, Random access memory or hard disk.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we provide incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested along with all the other hardware components before and after any new machine is built in order to make certain that we won't use a faulty part which might cause a problem eventually. We also employ the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can cope with massive incoming and outbound traffic to any machine, whilst any traffic which is not legitimate shall be filtered and will not use up your system resources. The continuous access to the center is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. That way we guarantee the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting machines, which means that your sites and apps will be functioning at top speed all of the time.
