Server Network Hardware
Learn precisely what networking hardware a dedicated server has and in what way it can have an impact on your website’s overall performance.
In the event that you host your sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they shall perform super fast and that the access speed to them shall depend entirely on the Internet connection of the site visitors. However, this won't be the case in the event that the hosting server has lousy network connectivity or employs a network card, which simply just cannot cope with high volume of website traffic. If this is the case, it shall take a very long time for your websites to load if many people open them simultaneously or visitors could see error messages. Because of that you could lose visitors as almost certainly many people will never return to your website in case they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. This is the reason why you must pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine you get and not just to the main hardware like CPU, Ram memory or hard disk drive.
