In case you host your sites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they will perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them shall depend solely on the Internet connection of the visitors. Having said that, this will not be the case in case the hosting machine has bad network connectivity or employs a network card, which just can't cope with high volume of traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a very long time for your sites to load if a lot of people open them concurrently or visitors may see error messages. As a result you might lose site visitors as most probably many people won't revisit your site if they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. That's why you should pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine you purchase and not just to the main hardware like CPU, Ram memory or hard drive.

Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer include gigabit network cards which are tested alongside all the other hardware components before and after any new server is built in order to make sure that we will not employ a faulty part that might cause an issue at some point. We also use the most current 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 easily handle massive inbound and outgoing traffic to any machine, whilst any traffic that isn't legitimate shall be blocked and shall not take up your system resources. The continuous access to the center is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. That way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all our servers, which means your sites and apps shall be up and running at top speed at all times.
