In case you host your websites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they will perform very fast and that the access speed to them will depend solely on the Internet connection of the visitors. However, this won't be the case in the event that the hosting server has bad network connectivity or relies on a network card, which simply can't handle high volume of traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a while for your sites to load if many people open them at the same time or visitors might even see error messages. Because of that you might lose customers as probably many people won't return to your website in case they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. This is the reason why you should pay attention to the network components of any new server which you get and not just to the main hardware which includes Processor, RAM or hard disk drive.

Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer you include gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all the other hardware parts before and after any new hosting server is assembled in order to make sure that we will not use a faulty part that could cause an issue at some point. We also take advantage of 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 that can easily handle huge inbound and outbound traffic to any hosting server, while any traffic that is not legitimate will be filtered and will not use up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the facility is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet providers. That way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all our hosting servers, which means your sites and applications will be up and running at top speed all the time.
