How quickly a website is going to open depends not only on the Internet connection of the customer, but also on the online connectivity of the hosting server in which the internet site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etc. Slow connection or hardware that is unable to handle a high volume of inbound and outgoing traffic could have strong influence on the user experience of your website visitors and the efficiency of your internet site due to the fact that people will most probably see error messages that the website isn't available or it shall take a very long time for your content to load. In case such a thing occurs, it's not very likely that the guests will revisit the website. For that reason you must always examine the connectivity of any hosting machine that you buy and not just the main hardware components like hard disk, processor and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The Linux dedicated servers
we provide incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested along with all the other hardware parts before and after any new machine is built in order to ensure that we will never employ a faulty part that might cause an issue eventually. We also employ the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can easily cope with enormous 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 uninterrupted access to the facility is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. By doing this we ensure the fast and reliable connection to all our servers, which means your internet sites and applications shall be operational at top speed all the time.
