Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and operates independently from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the OS is usually ignored, but doing that may have quite a lot of advantages for your websites. The most important reason to employ the latest version is that patches are frequently released to deal with security holes in the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to use these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved functionality of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could immediately affect the functionality of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also know that their most recent versions require an updated Operating System in order to work effectively, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you take advantage of one of our Virtual Private Servers, you could take full advantage of our Managed Services pack, which features numerous administration tasks that our administrators can perform on your hosting server. Among them you'll find the Os update service, so in the event that you add the pack to your VPS server
plan, we'll keep your OS up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all 3 Os's we offer you - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you'll not have to be worried about server-side security issues and you can employ it if you don't have much experience with maintaining a Linux machine or if you simply don't have time to take care of such matters. After every single update our administrators will make certain that all websites and offline applications you have on the server are operating properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers
and you would like to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you're not sure how to do that or you simply do not have the required time to manage the hosting server, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service that is integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the Operating system that you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are done each week, so you will always have the latest Os version and you won't need to worry about any OS-related security problems.
