If you host your sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they will perform super fast and that the access speed to them will depend only on the Internet connection of the site visitors. However, this is not going to be the case in the event that the server has lousy network connectivity or relies on a network card, which simply can't deal with high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it will take a long time for your sites to load if a lot of people open them simultaneously or visitors may see error messages. Because of that you could lose visitors as most probably many people will not revisit your internet site in the event that they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. That's why you must pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine you get and not only to the main hardware which includes Central processing unit, Ram memory or hard drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting we offer include gigabit network cards which are tested together with all other hardware parts before and after any new machine is put together in order to ensure that we will never use a faulty part that might cause an issue 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 which can handle substantial incoming and outgoing traffic to any hosting server, whilst any traffic that isn't legitimate shall be filtered and shall not consume your system resources. The continuous access to the center is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. In this way we guarantee the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting machines, so your sites and apps shall be up and running at top speed all the time.
