If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a rather important task for several reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more safe because updates typically include security patches which deal with small problems that may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you employ one of our Virtual Private Servers, you'll be able to benefit from our Managed Services pack, which features numerous admin tasks which our administrators can perform on your hosting server. Among them you will discover the Os update service, so if you include the pack to your VPS server plan, we shall keep your Operating system up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all three Os's that we supply - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you'll not need to worry about server-side security problems and you can employ it if you don't have a lot of experience with maintaining a Linux hosting server or if you simply do not have time to handle such matters. After every update our administrators will make sure that all internet sites and offline apps you have on the hosting machine are functioning properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated each week as part of our Managed Services upgrade, which you could add to your plan at any time through your billing Control Panel. The service applies to all Os's which we provide for the hosting machines and our administrators will set up all software patches that have been officially released so as to ensure that you have a stable and secure server for your websites. They'll also double-check if the software which you have installed is working properly after the update. The service is a great choice in the event that you do not have lots of experience running your own hosting machine or if you simply do not want to waste time on administration tasks.
