Server Network Hardware
What networking hardware devices does a dedicated server come equipped with? How do they affect the actual results of your web sites?
How fast a website is going to open depends not just on the Internet connection of the visitor, but also on the online connectivity of the server in which the site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etc. Slow connection or hardware that cannot handle a high volume of incoming and outgoing traffic may have direct influence on the consumer experience of your customers and the performance of your site due to the fact that people will most likely see error messages that the website is not available or it will take a long time for your content to load. In case this kind of a thing occurs, it is not very likely that the guests will revisit your website. Because of this you should always examine the connectivity of any hosting server that you purchase and not only the main hardware components such as hard disk drive, cpu and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The Linux dedicated servers which we offer come with gigabit network cards which are tested together with all the other hardware parts before and after any new hosting server is built so as to ensure that we will not employ a faulty part that could cause an issue at some point. We also take advantage of the most current hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can certainly deal with huge inbound and outbound traffic to any hosting machine, whilst any traffic that isn't legitimate shall be filtered and will not take up your system resources. The continuous access to the center is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we guarantee the fast and stable connection to all of our hosting servers, which means your sites and apps shall be functioning at top speed all of the time.
