In the event that you host your websites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they will perform very fast and that the access speed to them will depend solely on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Nevertheless, this is not going to be the case in case the hosting server has lousy network connectivity or relies on a network card, which simply just cannot handle high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take a long time for your sites to load if a lot of people open them concurrently or visitors might even see error messages. Consequently you could lose website visitors as in all probability many people won't return to your site if they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. This is why you must pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine you get and not just to the main hardware like CPU, RAM or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The Linux dedicated servers we provide feature gigabit network cards which are tested together with all other hardware components before and after any new server is assembled as to make certain that we will not employ a faulty part that could 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. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that could easily deal with substantial inbound and outbound traffic to any hosting server, while any traffic that isn't legitimate shall be filtered and won't take up your system resources. The continuous access to the center is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. By doing this we guarantee the fast and stable connection to all of our servers, so your internet sites and apps shall be functioning at top speed all the time.
