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 via a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Os updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern OS version could have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web apps you install. Your server shall also be more protected as updates usually include security patches that resolve small issues which may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, current 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 effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you would like to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own server before and you aren't certain how to do that or you just do not have enough time to manage the server, you are able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that's included in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can install the latest patches for the OS which you have chosen for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they shall make certain that your apps are functioning correctly after that. The updates are performed every week, so you'll constantly have the latest Os version and you won't have to stress about any OS-related security issues.
