In case you host your websites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they will perform very fast and that the access speed to them will depend solely on the Internet connection of the site visitors. However, this is not going to be the case in the event that the hosting machine has poor network connectivity or uses a network card, which just can't handle high volume of site traffic. If this is the situation, it'll take a while for your sites to load if lots of people open them simultaneously or visitors might even see error messages. Thus you could lose customers as in all probability many people will never revisit your 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 that you acquire and not just to the main hardware which includes CPU, RAM or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Web Hosting
The dedicated servers hosting packages we offer feature gigabit network cards which are tested alongside all other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is built so as to make sure that we won't use a faulty part which can cause a problem after some time. We also take advantage of the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can deal with enormous inbound and outgoing traffic to any hosting machine, whilst any traffic that isn't legitimate shall be blocked and will not use up your system resources. The constant access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet providers. In this way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all of our servers, so your sites and applications will be working at top speed at all times.
