How fast a site will open is dependent not only on the Internet connection of the website visitor, but also on the connection of the server where the website is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etcetera. Slow connection or hardware which cannot handle a high volume of inbound and outgoing traffic might have direct impact on the user experience of your visitors and the performance of your website due to the fact that people will most likely see error messages that the site isn't available or it will take a long time for your content to load. In case such a thing happens, it's unlikely that the website visitors will return to the website. That is why you should always check out the connectivity of any server that you obtain and not just the main hardware components like hard disk drive, cpu and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers
that we provide include gigabit network cards that are tested alongside all the other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is built as to make certain that we won't use a faulty part which could cause a problem after some time. We also use the newest hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can deal with huge inbound and outgoing traffic to any server, while any traffic that's not legitimate shall be filtered and will not consume your system resources. The constant access to the facility is ensured by using redundant backbone Internet providers. In this way we ensure the fast and secure connection to all of our servers, which means that your internet sites and applications will be up and running at top speed at all times.
