If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side applications directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a rather important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the websites and web applications you install. Your server will also be more protected because updates usually include security patches which deal with small problems which may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you select one of our VPS servers packages but you do not have enough time to handle the hosting machine maintenance or you aren't quite experienced, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade that we offer. Among other things, our admins will take care of the Os updates for you, so you will constantly have a secure and stable hosting machine. The updates are performed on a weekly basis and after each our technical support support will ensure that any piece of software set up on the hosting server is operating properly as to avoid any incompatibility problems down the road. You can use the Managed services upgrade and the Operating System update service for each and every Operating system that we provide - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated servers and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you aren't certain how to do that or you simply do not have much time to manage the server, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service that's integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can install the latest patches for the Operating system that you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will ensure that all your applications are working correctly after that. The updates are done once a week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you won't have to concern yourself with any OS-related security issues.
