In case you host your websites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they will perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them will depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Nevertheless, this will not be the case if the hosting machine has poor network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply just cannot cope with high volume of site traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take a very long time for your internet sites to load if lots of people open them concurrently or visitors could see error messages. As a result you may lose customers as probably many people won't revisit your site in case they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. This is the reason 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 such as CPU, Random access memory or hard disk.

Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated web hosting plans which we provide incorporate gigabit network cards which are tested along with all other hardware components before and after any new machine is assembled so as to ensure that we will never use a faulty part that can cause an issue sooner or later. We also use the newest hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can easily deal with substantial incoming and outgoing traffic to any hosting machine, while any traffic which is not legitimate will be blocked and will not use up your system resources. The continuous access to the center is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we ensure the fast and stable connection to all our hosting machines, which means that your sites and apps will be operational at top speed all the time.
