Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Os and works separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the Operating system is frequently overlooked, but doing that could have a wide range of advantages for your internet sites. The most essential reason to use the latest version is that patches are frequently released to fix security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for much better performance of the system as a whole and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could directly affect the functionality of your sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also find out that their newest versions require an updated Operating System so as to function effectively, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a wise idea.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated servers 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 do not have much time to manage the hosting machine, you are able to take advantage of the Operating system update service which is integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our administrators can set up the latest patches for the OS which you have chosen for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make certain that all your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are performed each week, so you'll constantly have the latest Os version and you'll not have to bother about any OS-related security problems.
