A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, though underrated task. Not only can an update boost the general performance of your sites, but it can also save you a lot of issues in the future. An update can be released for several reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and change the content that you have on the hosting machine. You can also see an improved functionality of your web applications because updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on so as to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could also need a later Operating system version that will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to function effectively.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own server before and you are not certain how to do that or you simply do not have the required time to take care of the server, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service that is included in our Managed Services bundle. Our administrators can set up the latest patches for the OS you have picked for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make certain that all your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are performed every week, so you will constantly have the latest Operating System version and you won't have to stress about any OS-related security issues.
