If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Os and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a quite important task for a number of reasons. A more modern Operating system version could have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more safe because updates typically include security patches which deal with small problems which may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both boosted 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 benefit from our Managed Services pack, which includes a number of administration tasks which our administrators can perform on your hosting machine. Among them you will discover the Operating System update service, so if you include the pack to your VPS server plan, we'll keep your Operating system up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all 3 Operating Systems we supply - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you will not need to be worried about server-side security issues and you can employ it if you don't have loads of 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 make sure that all internet sites and offline apps that you have on the server are functioning properly.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers

In case you do not have enough time to update the Os of your dedicated server or you aren't incredibly experienced and you simply don't possess the skills to do that, you could take advantage of our Operating system update service, which is included with the Managed Services upgrade. The latter can be included to your account whenever you want and our system admins will update the Operating System that you have picked during the signup - Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS, with all officially released patches. They'll also thoroughly check if the software on your server is operating exactly how it ismeant to after the update so as to avoid any problems down the road. You'll have a secure hosting server at all times as the updates are carried out each week.
