In the event that you host your sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they will perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them shall depend only on the Internet connection of the site visitors. Having said that, this won't be the case in the event that the server has poor network connectivity or relies on a network card, which just cannot handle high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it will take a long time for your websites to load if many people open them concurrently or visitors might even see error messages. Thus you may lose visitors as most probably many people will not revisit your internet site in the event that they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. That's why you need to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server that you acquire and not just to the main hardware like Processor, RAM or hard drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated hosting services which we provide include gigabit network cards which are tested together with all other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is assembled in order to ensure that we will never use a faulty part which might cause a problem after some time. We also use the newest hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can easily handle huge incoming and outgoing traffic to any machine, while any traffic which is not legitimate shall be blocked and shall not consume your system resources. The continuous access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. This way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting servers, so your websites and applications will be operational at top speed all the time.
