In the event that you host your internet sites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they will perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them shall depend only on the Internet connection of the website visitors. However, this won't be the case in the event that the hosting server has poor network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply just can't cope with high volume of site traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a while for your sites to load if a lot of people open them concurrently or visitors could see error messages. Thus you might lose website visitors as most probably many people won't return to your internet site in the event that they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. That is why you ought to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server that you buy and not only to the main hardware such as Central processing unit, RAM or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers
which we offer incorporate gigabit network cards which are tested along with all the other hardware parts before and after any new machine is put together in order to make sure that we will not employ a faulty part which could cause a problem at some point. We also employ the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can easily cope with huge inbound and outgoing traffic to any server, whilst any traffic that is not legitimate shall be filtered and will not consume your system resources. The constant access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet providers. This way we guarantee the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting machines, which means your websites and apps will be working at top speed all the time.
