In the event that you host your sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they shall perform very fast and that the access speed to them will depend entirely on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Having said that, this is not going to be the case in case the server has lousy network connectivity or uses a network card, which just cannot handle high volume of traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a very long time for your sites to load if lots of people open them simultaneously or visitors might even see error messages. As a result you might lose visitors as most likely many people will never revisit your website in case they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. That is why you must pay attention to the network components of any new server that you purchase and not only to the main hardware which includes CPU, RAM or hard disk.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we offer you feature gigabit network cards which are tested along with all other hardware components before and after any new machine is put together as to make sure that we will never use a faulty part that can cause an issue sooner or later. We also use 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 hosting machine, whilst any traffic that is not legitimate shall be filtered and won't take up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. By doing this we ensure the fast and stable connection to all our servers, which means that your websites and applications will be up and running at top speed at all times.
