If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side programs directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A newer Operating system version could have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web apps which you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates normally include security patches which resolve small issues which may allow unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you wish to have the latest version of the Operating System running on your VPS servers, you could leverage the OS update service which we offer you as an element of our Managed Services upgrade. Our experienced administrators shall set up all patches that have been released for the OS that you have picked for your hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS. They'll also make certain that there are no issues after the update with any software you have installed on the VPS. The service is done every week and it is a great opportunity to have a risk-free and stable hosting machine at all times in the event that you don't have much experience to update the Operating System yourself or you do not have time to manage the hosting machine.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server from our company, we could update its Operating System for you as a part of our Managed Services upgrade, so when you have more important things to do or you are simply not tech-savvy and you're not confident how to complete this, we can take care of this task. Our admins shall do the necessary to set up the latest update to the Operating System running on your hosting server without service interruptions and will ensure that your sites and any other programs which you have set up are functioning correctly once they are done with the update. You'll be able to get the Managed Services upgrade during the signup or through your billing Control Panel and have your OS updated every week for a more secure software environment for your sites.
