If you host your internet sites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they shall perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them shall depend only on the Internet connection of the website visitors. However, this is not going to be the case in case the hosting machine has poor network connectivity or uses a network card, which just cannot deal with high volume of site traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take quite a long time for your sites to load if lots of people open them at the same time or visitors could see error messages. Thus you might lose website visitors as probably many people will never return to your website in the event that they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. That is why you ought to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine which you get and not just to the main hardware which includes Central processing unit, Random access memory or hard drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers that we offer you include gigabit network cards that are tested along with all the other hardware components before and after any new machine is assembled so as to make certain that we will not employ a faulty part that might cause a problem at some point. We also use the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can deal with huge incoming and outbound traffic to any hosting machine, whilst any traffic that's not legitimate will be filtered and shall not consume your system resources. The continuous access to the facility is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet providers. In this way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all of our hosting servers, which means that your websites and applications will be functioning at top speed all of the time.
