As quick as your Internet connection might be, it'll do no good to access internet content in case the remote hosting machine has poor online connectivity or if its network card has small capacity and can't handle all the incoming and outbound website traffic. In case you have your very own hosting server, this may significantly impact the consumer experience of your site visitors and if they cannot open your site because of capacity issues or the webpages load slowly, they will probably close the site and it is more than likely that they won't revisit. In this light, when you get a new server, it's crucial to check not only the most obvious characteristics like hard drive, monthly traffic quota, central processing unit speed and physical memory, but also the bandwidth and the network card as to make certain that even in the event of considerable traffic to and from the server, your visitors will never experience connection-related problems.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we provide incorporate gigabit network cards which are tested together with all other hardware parts before and after any new machine is assembled as to make sure that we will not employ a faulty part that might cause a problem eventually. We also use the newest hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can handle huge inbound and outgoing traffic to any hosting server, whilst any traffic that's not legitimate shall be filtered and shall not take up your system resources. The continuous access to the center is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. By doing this we guarantee the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting servers, which means that your sites and applications shall be working at top speed at all times.
