If you host your sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they'll perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them shall depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the site visitors. Nevertheless, this is not going to be the case in the event that the hosting machine has lousy network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply just can't handle high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take a very long time for your websites to load if lots of people open them simultaneously or visitors could see error messages. Because of that you might lose website visitors as most probably many people will never return to your site if they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. This is why you should pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server you acquire and not only to the main hardware which includes CPU, RAM or hard disk.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated hosting which we provide incorporate gigabit network cards which are tested alongside all other hardware parts before and after any new hosting server is assembled as to ensure that we won't use a faulty part that can cause a problem after some time. We also take advantage of the newest hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can easily cope with enormous incoming and outbound traffic to any hosting machine, while any traffic that's not legitimate will be filtered and shall not use up your system resources. The constant access to the facility is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we ensure the fast and secure connection to all of our servers, so your websites and applications will be working at top speed at all times.
