Server Network Hardware
What networking hardware items does a dedicated server come provided with? How do they impact the actual functioning of your Internet sites?
How fast a website will open would depend not just on the Internet connection of the site visitor, but also on the connection of the server where the website is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, and many others. Slow connection or hardware which cannot deal with a high volume of incoming and outgoing traffic may have strong influence on the consumer experience of your visitors and the efficiency of your site since people will most probably see error messages that the internet site isn't available or it will take a long time for your content to load. If such a thing happens, it is not likely that the visitors shall return to the site. For this reason you need to always examine the connectivity of any server that you acquire and not only the main hardware components such as hard disk, processor and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans
that we provide come with gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all the other hardware parts before and after any new server is assembled in order to make certain that we will never employ a faulty part which could cause an issue at some point. We also use the latest hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can easily cope with substantial inbound and outgoing traffic to any server, whilst any traffic that is not legitimate shall be blocked and will not take up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the facility is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet providers. In this way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting servers, so your websites and apps will be working at top speed at all times.
