Multiple inputs for a web server’s router/switch

Apologies if this is a simple question. I haven't had much prior experience with networking hardware, hence the researching. Say hypothetically we had a glorified desktop that was going to be a web server with around 100 users, each with their own webspace. We would want to be able to cope with a peak bandwidth of 200 Mbps. To not overburden our one line and to maintain peak connectivity we'd have at least a couple of lines as input (if the ISP approved it). How then do we get those lines to connect to the webserver? A switch? I've seen in LAN set-ups that the switches are always in line after the router e.g. Internet> Router > Switch. I'm just not sure how it would work in our scenario. Any enlightenment would be very gratefully received.

Dear,

you should do your set up as follow:
1- you take the ISP lines to your router with configuring the router with BGP protocol or with any protocol work with the ISP to make load balance between the lines
2- behind the router you should have a firewalling system consistes of two firewalls back to back (multi-teer firewall) from two deffirrent brands like example(Cisco & StoneGate)
3- before the two firewalls you sholud have the switche with your servers will be connected to it

hope this will give you an idea how it should be
