How quickly a website will open would depend not only on the Internet connection of the website visitor, but also on the online connectivity of the server in which the site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, and so forth. Slow connection or hardware which is unable to handle a high volume of incoming and outbound traffic may have direct influence on the user experience of your customers and the functionality of your site since people shall probably see error messages that the website is not available or it shall take some time for your content to load. In the event that this sort of a thing takes place, it is not likely that the site visitors shall revisit the website. Because of this you ought to always check the connectivity of any hosting server that you acquire and not only the main hardware components which include hard disk drive, central processing unit and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans which we offer you feature gigabit network cards which are tested together with all the other hardware parts before and after any new server is put together so as to make sure that we won't use a faulty part which can cause a problem eventually. We also employ the most current hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls that can easily handle massive incoming and outbound traffic to any hosting machine, while any traffic that is not legitimate will be filtered and won't use up your system resources. The constant access to the facility is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we guarantee the fast and secure connection to all of our hosting machines, which means that your sites and apps will be operational at top speed all of the time.
