If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern Operating system version could have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more secure because updates typically include security patches which take care of small problems which may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you employ one of our Virtual Private Servers, you could take full advantage of our Managed Services pack, which includes numerous admin tasks which our administrators can perform on your hosting machine. Among them you shall find the Operating System update service, so in case you include the pack to your VPS server plan, we will keep your OS up-to-date all the time. This is valid for all 3 Os's we offer - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you will not have to worry about server-side security problems and you can employ it if you do not have a lot of experience with maintaining a Linux server or if you simply don't have time to take care of such matters. After each update our admins will make sure that all sites and offline apps that you have on the hosting machine are functioning properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated on a weekly basis as a part of our Managed Services upgrade, that you could add to your plan at any time using your billing Control Panel. The service is applicable to all Os's that we supply for the hosting machines and our administrators shall install all software patches which have been officially released in order to ensure that you have a stable and risk-free server for your internet sites. They will also double-check if the software that you have installed is operating properly after the update. The service is an outstanding choice in case you do not have much experience running your own hosting machine or if you simply do not want to waste time on administration tasks.
