If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for a number of reasons. A newer Operating system version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the websites and web apps that you install. Your server shall also be more secure as updates usually include security patches which deal with small problems that may allow unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.

Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers

Amongst other things, our administrators will deal with the Operating System updates for you, so you will constantly have a secure and reliable server. The updates are carried out on a weekly basis and after each one our tech support team will make sure that any piece of software installed on the hosting server is running correctly as to avoid any incompatibility issues down the road. You are able to use the Managed services upgrade and the Operating System update service for each OS that we offer you - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers

We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated every week as a part of our Managed Services upgrade, that you could add to your plan at any time using your billing Cp. The service is applicable to all Os's which we offer for the servers and our administrators shall install all software patches which have been officially released in order to make sure that you have a reliable and secure server for your websites. They'll also double-check if the software which you have installed is working adequately after the update. The service is a great choice in the event that you do not have a lot of experience running your own server or if you simply don't want to waste time on administration tasks.
