In case you host your internet sites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they will perform super fast and that the access speed to them shall depend solely on the Internet connection of the visitors. Nevertheless, this is not going to be the case in case the hosting machine has bad network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply just cannot cope with high volume of site traffic. If this is the case, it'll take a while for your websites to load if many people open them at the same time or visitors might even see error messages. Because of this you could lose visitors as most likely many people won't revisit your site in case they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. That is why you ought to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine that you get and not just to the main hardware such as Central processing unit, Ram memory or hard disk drive.

Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated web hosting plans we offer feature gigabit network cards that are tested together with all the other hardware parts before and after any new server is built so as to ensure that we won't employ a faulty part which might cause a problem eventually. 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 which can deal with huge inbound and outbound traffic to any hosting server, whilst any traffic which is not legitimate will be blocked and shall not consume your system resources. The constant access to the center is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. That way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting servers, so your sites and apps will be functioning at top speed all the time.
