Each and every virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and operates independently from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the Operating system is frequently ignored, but doing that may have a wide range of advantages for your sites. The most significant reason to employ the most up-to-date version is that patches are frequently released to fix security holes within the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to exploit these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could directly impact the functionality of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also find out that their newest versions require an updated Operating System in order to operate properly, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain 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 server before and you are not sure how to do that or you simply do not have enough time to manage the hosting server, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service that is included in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS that you have picked for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they shall make sure that your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are done once a week, so you'll always have the latest Operating System version and you will not need to worry about any OS-related security problems.
