If you host your sites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they will perform super fast and that the access speed to them will depend only on the Internet connection of the website visitors. However, this is not going to be the case in the event that the hosting server has poor network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply cannot deal with high volume of website traffic. If this is the situation, it'll take a while for your websites to load if a lot of people open them at the same time or visitors could see error messages. Thus you could lose customers as almost certainly many people won't revisit your website in case they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. This is why you should pay attention to the network components of any new hosting server you get and not just to the main hardware such as Central processing unit, Ram memory or hard drive.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated service which we provide come with gigabit network cards which are tested alongside all other hardware components before and after any new server is put together in order to make sure that we won't use a faulty part which can cause a problem eventually. We also use the newest 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 deal with enormous incoming and outbound traffic to any hosting server, whilst any traffic that's not legitimate shall be filtered and won't take up your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the facility is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. That way we ensure the fast and reliable connection to all of our hosting machines, which means that your internet sites and applications will be functioning at top speed all the time.
