Server Network Hardware
Learn about exactly what networking hardware a dedicated server provides and how it can influence your website’s overall performance.
In the event that you host your websites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they'll perform lightning fast and that the access speed to them shall depend solely on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Nevertheless, this won't be the case in case the hosting server has poor network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply can't deal with high volume of traffic. If this is the situation, it will take quite a long time for your websites to load if a lot of people open them concurrently or visitors could see error messages. Because of this you might lose customers as most probably many people will not return to your website if they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. This is why you must pay attention to the network components of any new server which you purchase and not just to the main hardware which includes Central processing unit, Random access memory or hard disk.
