If you host your internet sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they shall perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them will depend entirely on the Internet connection of the visitors. Having said that, this won't be the case in the event that the server has bad network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply cannot handle high volume of site traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a while for your internet sites to load if a lot of people open them concurrently or visitors could see error messages. Because of this you could lose customers as most probably many people will never revisit your internet site in the event that they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. This is the reason why you need to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server you get and not just to the main hardware which includes Processor, Random access memory or hard disk.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers which we offer you include gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all the other hardware components before and after any new server is assembled as to make certain that we won't use a faulty part that might cause a problem eventually. We also use the latest hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that could easily deal with huge incoming and outbound traffic to any machine, while any traffic which is not legitimate will be filtered and won't consume your system resources. The continuous access to the facility is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all of our hosting machines, which means that your sites and applications shall be up and running at top speed all of the time.
