How fast an internet site shall open would depend not just on the Internet connection of the site visitor, but also on the connectivity of the hosting machine where the internet site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etcetera. Slow connection or hardware that can't cope with a high volume of incoming and outbound traffic can have direct impact on the consumer experience of your customers and the functionality of your website since people shall most probably see error messages that the internet site is not available or it shall take some time for your content to load. In case this kind of a thing happens, it is not likely that the guests will revisit the site. Because of this you should always confirm the connectivity of any server that you obtain and not only the main hardware components like hard drive, cpu and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers we offer you come with gigabit network cards which are tested along with all the other hardware components before and after any new machine is assembled so as to make certain that we won't employ a faulty part that might cause a problem sooner or later. We also take advantage of the most up-to-date hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can handle massive incoming and outgoing traffic to any machine, whilst any traffic which is not legitimate will be filtered and will not consume your system resources. The constant access to the facility is made sure by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. In this way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all our hosting machines, so your websites and apps shall be working at top speed all the time.
