In the event that you host your sites on a dedicated hosting server, you would expect that they shall perform very fast and that the access speed to them will depend only on the Internet connection of the website visitors. Nevertheless, this will not be the case if the hosting server has bad network connectivity or relies on a network card, which just cannot cope with high volume of website traffic. If this is the case, it will take a while for your sites to load if many people open them simultaneously or visitors could see error messages. As a result you might lose website visitors as most probably many people won't return to your website in case 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 which you get and not only to the main hardware which includes CPU, Random access memory or hard disk.
