Server Network Hardware
What networking hardware devices does a dedicated server come equipped with? Just how can they influence the actual overall performance of your sites?
In case you host your websites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they'll perform super fast and that the access speed to them will depend solely on the Internet connection of the visitors. However, this is not going to be the case if the hosting server has bad network connectivity or uses a network card, which just can't cope with high volume of website traffic. If this is the case, it'll take a long time for your sites to load if lots of people open them concurrently or visitors could see error messages. Consequently you might lose visitors as most probably many people will never revisit your internet site if they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. That's why you must pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine that you buy and not only to the main hardware like Processor, Random access memory or hard disk.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans
we offer include gigabit network cards that are tested together with all the other hardware components before and after any new server is put together so as to make certain that we won't use a faulty part which could cause an issue eventually. We also take advantage of 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 which could easily handle huge inbound and outbound traffic to any machine, whilst any traffic that's not legitimate will be blocked and will not consume your system resources. The constant access to the center is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we ensure the fast and stable connection to all of our servers, which means that your sites and applications shall be up and running at top speed at all times.
