Server Network Hardware
What networking hardware items does a dedicated server come provided with? How do they influence the actual functioning of your websites?
If you host your websites on a dedicated server, you would expect that they shall perform very fast and that the access speed to them will depend only on the Internet connection of the site visitors. Having said that, this is not going to be the case if the server has lousy network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply can't deal with high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take a long time for your internet sites to load if lots of people open them simultaneously or visitors could see error messages. Thus you could lose website visitors as in all probability many people won't return to your website in case they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. This is the reason why you should pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server that you get and not just to the main hardware which includes Central processing unit, RAM or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans we offer you come with gigabit network cards which are tested alongside all other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is built so as to ensure that we won't employ a faulty part that might cause an issue at some point. We also employ the newest hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can deal with huge inbound and outbound traffic to any server, whilst any traffic that's not legitimate shall be blocked and shall not take up your system resources. The constant access to the facility is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we ensure the fast and stable connection to all of our hosting machines, which means your websites and apps shall be up and running at top speed all of the time.
