If you get a server of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Os updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a really important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more protected because updates often include security patches which resolve small problems which may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Hosting
If you choose one of our virtual private servers solutions but you do not have much time to deal with the hosting machine maintenance or you aren't very experienced, you can take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade that we provide. Among other things, our administrators will take care of the Operating System updates for you, so you will always have a secure and efficient server. The updates are performed on a weekly basis and after each of them our support team will make sure that any piece of software set up on the hosting server is functioning correctly so as to avoid any incompatibility problems down the road. You'll be able to use the Managed services upgrade and the Os update service for each Operating system that we offer you - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
We can keep the Os on your dedicated server updated each week as part of our Managed Services upgrade, which you can add to your plan whenever you want through your billing Control Panel. The service applies to all Operating Systems that we provide for the hosting servers and our admins shall install all software patches which have been officially released so as to make sure that you have a stable and secure server for your internet sites. They will also double-check if the software which you have installed is working effectively after the update. The service is a great choice if you don't have much experience running your own hosting server or if you simply do not want to lose time on administration tasks.
