If you host your internet sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they will perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them will depend solely on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Nevertheless, this will not be the case if the server has bad network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply just cannot handle high volume of traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take a very long time for your websites to load if lots of people open them concurrently or visitors may see error messages. Thus you might lose visitors as almost certainly many people won't return to your site in case they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. That's why you must pay attention to the network components of any new server you acquire and not only to the main hardware which includes Processor, Ram memory or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Web Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we offer incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is put together in order to make sure that we will never use a faulty part which could cause an issue at some point. We also take advantage of the latest hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can certainly handle enormous inbound and outbound traffic to any server, while any traffic that isn't legitimate will be filtered and won't use up your system resources. The continuous access to the facility is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. In this way we guarantee the fast and stable connection to all our hosting servers, which means your internet sites and apps shall be functioning at top speed all the time.
