In case you host your websites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they shall perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them will depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the visitors. Having said that, this won't be the case if the hosting server has bad network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply just can't deal with high volume of website traffic. If this is the case, it will take a while for your sites to load if lots of people open them simultaneously or visitors could see error messages. Because of that you might lose visitors as in all probability many people will not revisit your site in the event that they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. This is the reason why you need to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server which you purchase and not only to the main hardware such as Processor, RAM or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers that we offer include gigabit network cards which are tested alongside all the other hardware parts before and after any new server is put together in order to make sure that we won't employ a faulty part which can cause an issue after some time. We also use the newest hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can certainly handle huge inbound and outbound traffic to any machine, while any traffic which is not legitimate will be blocked and shall not consume your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the center is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet providers. This way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all our hosting machines, which means that your sites and apps shall be working at top speed at all times.
