In the event that you host your websites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they'll perform super fast and that the access speed to them will depend only on the Internet connection of the site visitors. However, this is not going to be the case in case the hosting machine has lousy network connectivity or relies on a network card, which simply can't cope with high volume of site traffic. If this is the situation, it shall take a long time for your sites to load if many people open them at the same time or visitors might even see error messages. Consequently you may lose customers as in all probability many people will not return to your internet site in the event that they have experienced difficulties or slow loading speeds. This is the reason why you should pay attention to the network components of any new hosting machine you get and not just to the main hardware like CPU, RAM or hard drive.
