If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a rather important task for a number of reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the websites and web applications that you install. Your server shall also be more protected since updates often include security patches that take care of small issues that may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you wish to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own hosting server before and you are not certain how to do that or you just don't have the required time to manage the hosting server, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service which is integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS you have picked for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they shall make sure that all your applications are working correctly after that. The updates are performed each week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you will not have to concern yourself with any OS-related security problems.
