Server Network Hardware
What networking hardware devices does a dedicated server come provided with? Just how can they impact the actual operation of your sites?
How quickly a website is going to open depends not just on the Internet connection of the customer, but also on the online connectivity of the hosting machine in which the site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etcetera. Slow connection or hardware that cannot handle a high volume of inbound and outbound traffic might have strong influence on the consumer experience of your website visitors and the functionality of your site as people shall probably see error messages that the internet site is not available or it will take a very long time for your content to load. In case such a thing occurs, it is not likely that the website visitors will return to the internet site. That is why you should always check out the connectivity of any server that you obtain and not just the main hardware components such as hard disk drive, central processing unit and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Hosting
The dedicated hosting services which we provide come with gigabit network cards which are tested together with all other hardware parts before and after any new server is built so as to ensure that we will never employ a faulty part that can cause an issue eventually. 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 which can deal with enormous inbound and outbound traffic to any hosting machine, while any traffic that isn't legitimate will be blocked and shall not take up your system resources. The continuous access to the facility is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. That way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all of our hosting machines, which means your internet sites and apps shall be functioning at top speed all of the time.
