How quickly a website shall open depends not only on the Internet connection of the site visitor, but also on the connection of the server where the website is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etc. Slow connection or hardware which is unable to deal with a high volume of incoming and outbound traffic might have strong influence on the user experience of your visitors and the performance of your website as people shall most probably see error messages that the site is not available or it shall take a very long time for your content to load. In case this sort of a thing takes place, it's not likely that the guests shall return to the website. For that reason 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 Servers

The dedicated servers which we offer you feature gigabit network cards which are tested alongside all other hardware parts before and after any new machine is put together so as to make certain that we will not use a faulty part that might cause a problem at some point. We also use the most current hardware for our internal network within the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can handle substantial inbound and outbound traffic to any server, while any traffic that is not legitimate shall be blocked and will not consume your system resources. The constant access to the facility is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet providers. This way we guarantee the fast and stable connection to all of our hosting machines, which means that your sites and applications will be functioning at top speed at all times.
