How quickly a site will open would depend not just on the Internet connection of the customer, but also on the online connectivity of the server in which the website 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 might have strong impact on the consumer experience of your customers and the efficiency of your internet site because people will most probably see error messages that the site is not available or it will take a very long time for your content to load. If this sort of a thing takes place, it's not likely that the website visitors shall return to the internet site. For that reason you must always check the connectivity of any hosting server that you buy and not only the main hardware components which include hard disk, central processing unit and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans which we provide come with gigabit network cards that are tested together with all the other hardware components before and after any new hosting server is built so as to ensure that we will never employ a faulty part that might cause a problem after some time. We also take advantage of the most current hardware for our internal network in the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. This includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which can easily deal with huge incoming and outgoing traffic to any machine, whilst any traffic which is not legitimate shall be blocked and won't use up your system resources. The continuous access to the facility is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet providers. By doing this we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all of our servers, which means your websites and applications will be working at top speed all of the time.
