How fast a site will open is dependent not just on the Internet connection of the visitor, but also on the connectivity of the hosting server where the internet site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, and so forth. Slow connection or hardware which cannot handle a high volume of incoming and outgoing traffic can have direct impact on the consumer experience of your customers and the efficiency of your site due to the fact that people will probably see error messages that the site is not available or it will take a very long time for your content to load. In case such a thing happens, it is not very likely that the visitors will return to the site. For that reason you should always check the connectivity of any server that you obtain and not just the main hardware components which include hard drive, cpu and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers that we offer you come with gigabit network cards which are tested along with all other hardware parts before and after any new machine is assembled so as to make sure that we will never use a faulty part that might cause a problem at some point. We also take advantage of the latest hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can deal with enormous inbound and outgoing traffic to any hosting server, whilst any traffic that is not legitimate will be blocked and will not consume your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. In this way we ensure the fast and reliable connection to all of our servers, which means that your sites and applications shall be operational at top speed all of the time.
