If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you could later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Os updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version might have better support for certain hardware, so you may get better performance for the internet sites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more safe as updates usually include security patches that take care of small problems which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you take advantage of one of our Virtual Private Servers, you can benefit from our Managed Services pack, which incorporates a number of admin tasks that our administrators can perform on your hosting server. Among them you will find the Operating System update service, so in the event that you add the pack to your VPS server plan, we will keep your OS up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all three Operating Systems that we offer - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you'll not need to be worried about server-side security issues and you can use it if you do not have much experience with maintaining a Linux machine or if you simply do not have time to deal with such matters. After every update our admins will ensure that all internet sites and offline apps you have on the hosting machine are functioning properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you do not have the time to update the Operating System of your dedicated server or you aren't incredibly experienced and you simply do not possess the skills to do that, you could take full advantage of our Operating system update service, which comes with the Managed Services upgrade.
