How fast a website will open is dependent not only on the Internet connection of the customer, but also on the connection of the hosting machine in which the site is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etcetera. Slow connection or hardware that can't cope with a high volume of incoming and outgoing traffic can have strong impact on the user experience of your customers and the performance 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. If such a thing happens, it's unlikely that the website visitors will revisit the website. For that reason you should always examine the connectivity of any hosting machine that you acquire and not just the main hardware components such as hard disk, central processing unit and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The Linux dedicated service
which we provide include gigabit network cards that are tested along with all other hardware parts before and after any new machine is assembled so as to make certain that we won't employ a faulty part that could cause an issue at some point. We also use the newest 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 cope with substantial inbound and outbound traffic to any hosting server, while any traffic that's not legitimate shall be filtered and won't consume your system resources. The constant access to the facility is made certain by using redundant backbone Internet providers. In this way we guarantee the fast and stable connection to all our hosting servers, so your sites and applications shall be functioning at top speed all the time.
