If you get a hosting server of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Os updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version might have better support for certain hardware, so you may get better performance for the internet sites and web apps that you install. Your server will also be more protected because updates typically include security patches which take care of small issues which may permit 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 Operating System in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.

Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers

If you use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you'll be able to take advantage of our Managed Services pack, which features 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 VPS server plan, we shall keep your Operating system up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all three Operating Systems we supply - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you won't have to be concerned about server-side security issues and you can use it if you do not have much experience with maintaining a Linux server or if you simply do not have time to handle such matters. After every update our administrators will make certain that all sites and offline applications which you have on the hosting machine are functioning properly.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated servers and you want to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own server before and you're not confident how to do that or you just do not have enough time to deal with the server, you can take advantage of the Operating system update service that's included in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can install the latest patches for the Operating system that you have picked for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will ensure that all your apps are working correctly after that. The updates are carried out once a week, so you will always have the latest Os version and you will not need to worry about any OS-related security problems.
