If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you could later install server side programs directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a rather important task for a variety of reasons. A newer OS version could have better support for certain hardware, so you may get better performance for the sites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more safe because updates usually include security patches that deal with small issues which may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS
If you take advantage of one of our Virtual Private Servers, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services pack, which includes a variety of admin tasks our administrators can perform on your hosting server. Among them you will find the Os update service, so if you add the pack to your virtual private server plan, we'll keep your Operating system up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all 3 Os's that we supply - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you'll not need to be concerned about server-side security issues and you can use it if you don't 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 and every update our admins will make sure that all internet sites and offline applications that you have on the hosting machine are operating properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated every week as an element of our Managed Services upgrade, which you will be able to add to your plan at any time using your billing Control Panel. The service is applicable to all Os's that we provide for the hosting machines and our admins will install all software patches that have been officially released as to make certain that you have a stable and risk-free machine for your websites. They will also double-check if the software that you have installed is functioning correctly after the update. The service is an outstanding choice in case you don't have lots of experience running your own hosting machine or if you simply don't want to waste time on administration tasks.
