In case you host your sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they will perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them will depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the visitors. Having said that, this is not going to be the case in the event that the hosting machine has lousy network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply can't handle high volume of site traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a very long time for your websites to load if many people open them simultaneously or visitors might even see error messages. As a result you may lose visitors as most probably many people won't return to your internet site if they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. This is the reason why you must pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server that you purchase and not just to the main hardware like CPU, Random access memory or hard disk.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The Linux dedicated servers hosting packages we provide incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all the other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is built as to make sure that we will not employ a faulty part which can cause a problem sooner or later. We also take advantage of the newest hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can easily handle huge inbound and outbound traffic to any server, whilst any traffic that's not legitimate shall be blocked and shall not take up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the center is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. In this way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting servers, which means that your sites and applications shall be working at top speed all the time.
