Server Network Hardware
Understand exactly what networking hardware a dedicated server offers and ways in which it can impact your website’s performance.
How fast a website shall open would depend not just on the Internet connection of the site visitor, but also on the connection of the hosting server where the site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etcetera. Slow connection or hardware which cannot cope with a high volume of inbound and outgoing traffic can have strong influence on the user experience of your customers and the performance of your internet site since people shall most probably see error messages that the website is not available or it shall take a long time for your content to load. In the event that such a thing takes place, it's not likely that the visitors shall revisit the website. That is why you must always check out the connectivity of any hosting server that you buy and not only the main hardware components such as hard disk drive, cpu and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers
that we offer you come with gigabit network cards that are tested along with all other hardware parts before and after any new server is built so as to make sure that we will not use a faulty part which can cause a problem eventually. We also use 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 easily deal with enormous incoming and outbound traffic to any hosting machine, whilst any traffic that isn't legitimate shall be filtered and won't take up your system resources. The constant access to the center is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet providers. In this way we ensure the fast and stable connection to all of our hosting machines, so your sites and apps will be working at top speed at all times.
