How fast a site will open is dependent not just on the Internet connection of the visitor, but also on the connectivity of the server in which the website is hosted and on the network infrastructure - routers, server network card, etc. Slow connection or hardware that can't cope with a high volume of incoming and outbound traffic could have powerful impact on the user experience of your website visitors and the performance of your website as people will most probably see error messages that the internet site isn't available or it shall take some time for your content to load. In the event that such a thing takes place, it's not likely that the site visitors will revisit the internet site. That is why you need to always confirm the connectivity of any hosting server that you buy and not only the main hardware components such as hard disk, cpu and physical memory.
Server Network Hardware in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated web hosting plans that we offer incorporate gigabit network cards that are tested together with all other hardware parts before and after any new machine is assembled as to make sure that we won't use a faulty part that can cause a problem at some point. We also employ the most current hardware for our internal network inside the Chicago data center where we offer the dedicated plans. That includes routers, switches and hardware firewalls which could easily deal with enormous inbound and outgoing traffic to any machine, whilst any traffic which is not legitimate will be filtered and won't consume your system resources. The uninterrupted access to the center is guaranteed by using redundant backbone Internet suppliers. That way we guarantee the fast and reliable connection to all of our hosting machines, which means your sites and applications will be up and running at top speed at all times.
