If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A newer Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the sites and web apps that you install. Your server will also be more safe since updates typically include security patches which resolve small issues which may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.

Weekly OS Update in VPS

If you opt for one of our virtual private servers plans but you do not have a lot of time to handle the hosting server maintenance or you are not really experienced, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade which we provide. Amongst other things, our admins will handle the Os updates for you, so you'll consistently have a secure and reliable hosting server. The updates are done on a weekly basis and after each one our support team will make certain that any piece of software installed on the hosting machine is running properly so as to avoid any incompatibility complications later on. You'll be able to use the Managed services upgrade and the Operating System update service for every OS that we provide - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting

If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own hosting server before and you aren't sure how to do that or you just don't have the required time to take care of the hosting machine, you can take advantage of the OS update service that's included in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can install the latest patches for the Operating system that you have selected for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that all your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are performed once a week, so you'll constantly have the latest Operating System version and you will not have to worry about any OS-related security problems.
