If you get a hosting server 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 websites via a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version could have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more safe because updates typically include security patches that fix small problems which may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you select one of our VPS servers plans but you don't have much time to take care of the hosting machine maintenance or you're not very experienced, you can take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade we offer. Among other things, our admins will take care of the Os updates for you, so you'll always have a secure and stable server. The updates are done on a weekly basis and after each of them our tech support team will ensure that any piece of software set up on the hosting machine is functioning properly so as to avoid any incompatibility complications later on. You could use the Managed services upgrade and the Os update service for every OS that we provide - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated every week as part of our Managed Services upgrade, which you could add to your plan at any time using your billing Cp. The service is applicable to all Operating Systems that we provide for the servers and our administrators shall set up all software patches that have been officially released so as to ensure that you have a stable and risk-free server for your internet sites. They shall also double-check if the software that you have installed is functioning adequately after the update. The service is a superb choice when you do not have a lot of experience running your own hosting machine or if you simply don't want to lose time on administration tasks.
