If you host your websites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they shall perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them shall depend only on the Internet connection of the site visitors. Having said that, this is not going to be the case in the event that the hosting machine has bad network connectivity or relies on a network card, which simply cannot handle high volume of site traffic. If this is the case, it'll take a long time for your websites to load if a lot of people open them at the same time or visitors might even see error messages. Because of this you might lose visitors as most probably many people will never 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 server that you acquire and not only to the main hardware which includes CPU, Random access memory or hard disk.

Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Web Hosting

The Linux dedicated web hosting that we provide include gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all the other hardware components before and after any new server is assembled so as to ensure that we won't employ a faulty part which might cause an issue after some time. We also use the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can handle huge incoming and outbound traffic to any hosting machine, whilst any traffic that isn't legitimate shall be blocked and shall not take up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the center is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. By doing this we ensure the fast and reliable connection to all of our hosting servers, which means your sites and applications shall be functioning at top speed at all times.
