Server Network Hardware
What networking hardware items does a dedicated server come equipped with? Just how can they influence the actual operation of your Internet sites?
In case you host your websites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they will perform super fast and that the access speed to them shall depend entirely on the Internet connection of the site visitors. Nevertheless, this won't be the case in the event that the hosting server has bad network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply just cannot cope with high volume of site traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take a long time for your websites to load if lots of people open them at the same time or visitors could see error messages. Consequently you may lose site visitors as probably many people won't revisit your site in the event that they have experienced problems or slow loading speeds. This is why you should pay attention to the network components of any new server which you acquire and not only to the main hardware such as Processor, Random access memory or hard disk drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers which we provide come with gigabit network cards that are tested together with all other hardware components before and after any new server is assembled as to make sure that we will never employ a faulty part that might cause a problem after some time. We also take advantage of the most current hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can easily cope with substantial incoming and outgoing traffic to any hosting machine, while any traffic that isn't legitimate will be blocked and will not take up your system resources. The constant access to the center is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. That way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all our servers, which means your websites and applications will be up and running at top speed all the time.
