If you host your websites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they shall perform very fast and that the access speed to them shall depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the website visitors. However, this is not going to be the case in the event that the hosting server has lousy network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply just cannot deal with high volume of site traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take quite a long time for your sites to load if many people open them at the same time or visitors could see error messages. Consequently you could lose website visitors as most probably many people won't revisit your site in the event that they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. That's why you ought to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine which you buy and not only to the main hardware which includes Processor, RAM or hard disk.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting we provide include gigabit network cards that are tested along with all the other hardware components before and after any new machine is assembled as to ensure that we won't use a faulty part which can cause a problem eventually. We also employ the latest hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can certainly handle massive inbound and outbound traffic to any hosting server, whilst any traffic that isn't legitimate will be blocked and will 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 our servers, so your sites and apps will be operational at top speed all the time.
