In case you host your websites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they will perform super fast and that the access speed to them will depend solely on the Internet connection of the visitors. Having said that, this won't be the case in case the hosting machine has poor network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply just can't deal with high volume of traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a while for your sites to load if many people open them at the same time or visitors could see error messages. Thus you could lose website visitors as most likely many people won't revisit your internet site if they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. This is why you should pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server which you acquire and not only to the main hardware which includes Processor, RAM or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer you incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested along with all other hardware components before and after any new server is put together so as to make certain that we will never use a faulty part which might cause a problem at some point. We also take advantage of the newest hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which could easily deal with enormous incoming and outgoing traffic to any hosting machine, while any traffic which is not legitimate shall be blocked and will not use up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the center is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. That way we guarantee the fast and stable connection to all of our hosting machines, which means your internet sites and applications shall be functioning at top speed at all times.
