Server Network Hardware
Discover just what networking hardware a dedicated server offers and ways in which it will affect your website’s performance.
In the event that you host your websites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they will perform extremely fast and that the access speed to them will depend exclusively on the Internet connection of the site visitors. Having said that, this is not going to be the case if the hosting machine has lousy network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply just cannot cope with high volume of website traffic. If this is the case, it'll take a long time for your sites to load if many people open them at the same time or visitors could see error messages. Because of that you may lose site visitors as in all probability many people will not revisit your site if they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. This is the reason why you need to pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine that you get and not only to the main hardware like CPU, Ram memory or hard drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans which we offer you come with gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all the other hardware parts before and after any new server is built in order to ensure that we will never employ a faulty part that might cause an issue sooner or later. We also employ the newest hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that could easily handle huge incoming and outgoing traffic to any server, while any traffic that's not legitimate will be filtered and won't consume your system resources. The constant access to the center is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet providers. This way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all of our servers, so your internet sites and applications will be operational at top speed at all times.
