If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Cp. While keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web apps that you install. Your server shall also be more protected because updates often include security patches that fix small issues that may enable 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 Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and you wish to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own hosting server before and you are not sure how to do that or you just do not have the required time to deal with the hosting server, you are able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that is integrated in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS you have chosen for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that all your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are done once a week, so you'll constantly have the latest Operating System version and you'll not have to bother about any OS-related security problems.
