How quickly an internet site will open would depend not just on the Internet connection of the visitor, but also on the online connectivity of the hosting machine where the internet site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, and so on. Slow connection or hardware which is unable to cope with a high volume of inbound and outbound traffic might have powerful impact on the consumer experience of your customers and the functionality of your internet site because people shall probably see error messages that the site is not available or it will take a long time for your content to load. If such a thing happens, it's not likely that the website visitors shall return to the website. Because of this you should always check the connectivity of any server that you acquire and not only the main hardware components which include hard drive, processor and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The Linux dedicated web hosting plans we provide incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is built in order to make certain that we will not use a faulty part which could cause an issue at some point. We also employ the newest hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that could easily deal with substantial incoming and outgoing traffic to any machine, whilst any traffic that is not legitimate shall be blocked and will not use up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet providers. This way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all our servers, so your sites and applications shall be operational at top speed at all times.
