If you host your internet sites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they'll perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them will depend only on the Internet connection of the site visitors. However, this won't be the case in the event that the hosting server has lousy network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply cannot handle high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it will take a long time for your websites to load if lots of people open them at the same time or visitors may see error messages. Consequently you may lose site visitors as most probably many people will not revisit your internet site in case they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. This is why you need to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine that you buy and not just to the main hardware like Central processing unit, Random access memory or hard drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer feature gigabit network cards which are tested along with all the other hardware components before and after any new machine is assembled in order to make sure that we will not employ a faulty part which might cause a problem eventually. We also take advantage of the latest hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that could easily handle substantial inbound and outbound traffic to any server, while any traffic which is not legitimate will be blocked and shall not use up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the facility is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. This way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all of our servers, which means that your sites and applications will be operational at top speed all the time.
