In case you host your sites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they will perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them will depend solely on the Internet connection of the visitors. Nevertheless, this won't be the case if the hosting machine has poor network connectivity or employs a network card, which just can't handle high volume of site traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a long time for your internet sites to load if lots of people open them simultaneously or visitors may see error messages. Because of this you might lose site visitors as most likely many people won't revisit your site in case they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. That's why you should pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server you purchase and not just to the main hardware which includes Central processing unit, RAM or hard drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Web Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which we offer incorporate gigabit network cards which are tested together with all other hardware parts before and after any new machine is assembled so as to make sure that we will never employ a faulty part which could cause an issue eventually. We also use the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which could easily deal with huge inbound and outgoing traffic to any hosting server, while any traffic that is not legitimate shall be blocked and shall not use up your system resources. The constant access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. This way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all of our servers, which means that your websites and apps shall be up and running at top speed all the time.
