In the event that you host your sites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they shall perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them shall depend entirely on the Internet connection of the site visitors. However, this is not going to be the case in the event that the hosting server has bad network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply cannot deal with high volume of traffic. If this is the case, it will take a very long time for your websites to load if a lot of people open them simultaneously or visitors may see error messages. Thus you may lose site visitors as almost certainly many people won't revisit your site if they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. This is why you need to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine 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 Linux dedicated service
which we offer incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is assembled so as to make certain that we won't use a faulty part which might cause a problem at some point. We also use the most current hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can easily handle enormous inbound and outgoing traffic to any machine, while any traffic that is not legitimate shall be blocked and shall not take up your system resources. The constant access to the center is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. In this way we ensure the fast and stable connection to all of our hosting servers, which means your sites and apps shall be functioning at top speed all of the time.
