Server Network Hardware
What networking hardware devices does a dedicated server come equipped with? How do they affect the actual performance of your sites?
If you host your websites on a dedicated hosting machine, you would expect that they will perform ultra fast and that the access speed to them shall depend solely on the Internet connection of the website visitors. However, this is not going to be the case in the event that the hosting server has poor network connectivity or uses a network card, which simply cannot handle high volume of traffic. If this is the situation, it will take quite a long time for your sites to load if lots of people open them at the same time or visitors could see error messages. Therefore you could lose site visitors as probably many people will not return to your internet site if they have experienced issues or slow loading speeds. That's why you should pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine which you buy and not only to the main hardware which includes Central processing unit, Ram memory or hard disk.
