In case you host your websites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they'll perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them will depend only on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Nevertheless, this will not be the case in case the hosting server has lousy network connectivity or relies on a network card, which simply cannot handle high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it'll take a while for your sites to load if many people open them at the same time or visitors may see error messages. Consequently you may lose visitors as most likely many people will not return to your website in the event that they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. That's why you ought to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine you purchase and not only to the main hardware like Processor, Random access memory or hard disk drive.

Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers

The Linux dedicated servers which we offer feature gigabit network cards which are tested together with all other hardware components before and after any new server is put together so as to ensure that we will never use a faulty part that might cause a problem at some point. We also use 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 that can certainly cope with substantial inbound and outgoing traffic to any server, while any traffic that is not legitimate will be filtered and won't use 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 internet sites and applications will be functioning at top speed at all times.
