Server Network Hardware
What networking hardware devices does a dedicated server come equipped with? How can they influence the actual operation of your Internet sites?
How quickly an internet site is going to open is dependent not only on the Internet connection of the website visitor, but also on the connection of the server where the website is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, and so forth. Slow connection or hardware which cannot handle a high volume of inbound and outbound traffic may have strong influence on the user experience of your customers and the overall performance of your site because people will most probably 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 happens, it is not very likely that the website visitors shall revisit your website. For this reason you have to always examine the connectivity of any hosting machine that you purchase and not just the main hardware components such as hard drive, cpu and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Hosting
The Linux dedicated hosting which we offer incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all the other hardware parts before and after any new machine is built so as to ensure that we will never employ a faulty part which could cause a problem sooner or later. We also use 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 that can certainly handle massive inbound and outgoing traffic to any hosting server, while any traffic that's not legitimate will be filtered and won't take up your system resources. The constant access to the center is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. This way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all of our hosting servers, which means that your websites and applications shall be up and running at top speed at all times.
