A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, though underestimated task. Not only can an update enhance the functionality of your internet sites, but it could also save you a lot of troubles down the road. An update may be released for a lot of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix newly found security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and change the content that you have on the server. You can also see an improved overall performance of your web apps as updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it works on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they might need a later OS version which will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to work adequately.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated servers and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting server before and you are not sure how to do that or you just do not have the required time to take care of the hosting server, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that's included in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS you have picked for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make certain that all your apps are working correctly after that. The updates are performed on a weekly basis, so you will constantly have the latest Os version and you'll not need to stress about any OS-related security problems.
