If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates normally include security patches that deal with small issues which may allow 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, might require a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you take advantage of one of our Virtual Private Servers, you'll be able to take advantage of our Managed Services pack, which features a number of administration tasks our administrators can perform on your hosting machine. Among them you'll discover the Operating System update service, so if you add the pack to your VPS server plan, we shall keep your OS up-to-date all the time. This is valid for all three Os's we supply - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you will not need to be concerned about server-side security problems and you can use it if you do not have loads of experience with maintaining a Linux machine or if you simply don't have time to deal with such matters. After each and every update our administrators will make sure that all sites and offline apps which you have on the hosting machine are functioning properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
In the event that you have a dedicated server from our company, we could update its Operating System for you as part of our Managed Services upgrade, so in case you have more important things to do or you're simply not tech-savvy and you're not sure how to do this, we can handle this task. Our admins will do the necessary to set up the latest update to the Operating System working on your server without service disruptions and will make sure that your sites and any other applications which you have installed are functioning correctly once they are done with the update. You can get the Managed Services upgrade during the signup or through your billing Cp and have your Operating system updated every week for a more secure software environment for your websites.
