Server Network Hardware
Learn about what networking hardware a dedicated server features and in what ways it could influence your website’s performance.
As swift as your Internet connection could be, it will do no good to access internet content if the remote hosting server has bad connectivity or if its network card has lower capacity and is unable to deal with all the incoming and outgoing traffic. In case you have your own server, this can tremendously affect the user experience of your visitors and if they can't open your website as a result of capacity issues or the websites load slowly, they'll most probably close the site and it is more than likely that they will never return. In this light, when you acquire a new hosting server, it's important to examine not just the most obvious characteristics like hard drive, monthly traffic quota, cpu speed and physical memory, but also the bandwidth along with the network card as to make certain that even in the event of serious traffic to and from the hosting server, your website visitors will never experience connection-related problems.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans which we offer come with gigabit network cards which are tested together with all the other hardware components before and after any new machine is assembled as to ensure that we will not use a faulty part that can cause an issue sooner or later. We also use the most current hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can easily cope with huge incoming and outgoing traffic to any hosting server, while any traffic that is not legitimate will be filtered and won't take up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the center is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet providers. In this way we guarantee the fast and stable connection to all of our hosting servers, which means your internet sites and applications will be functioning at top speed at all times.
