Each and every virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and works independently from the servers of other clients. Updating the OS is frequently neglected, but doing that may have lots of advantages for your internet sites. The most significant reason to employ the most recent version is that patches are typically released to fix security holes within the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved performance of the system as a whole and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly influence the functionality of your sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also know that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Operating System to be able to function properly, so keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a good idea.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you aren't confident how to do that or you simply do not have much time to deal with the hosting server, you can take advantage of the OS update service which is included in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can install the latest patches for the OS you have chosen for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will ensure that all your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are performed every week, so you will always have the latest Operating System version and you won't need to worry about any OS-related security problems.
