If you get a hosting server of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Cp. While keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a quite important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version may have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the internet sites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more safe since updates often include security patches that fix small issues which may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and you would like to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own hosting machine before and you aren't confident how to do that or you simply don't have the required time to manage the hosting server, you are able to take advantage of the Operating system update service which is integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the Operating system that you have chosen for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that all your apps are functioning correctly after that. The updates are carried out once a week, so you'll constantly have the latest Operating System version and you will not have to stress about any OS-related security issues.
