Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and works independently from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is often neglected, but doing that could have a wide range of advantages for your internet sites. The most essential reason to use the most recent version is that patches are typically released to fix security holes inside the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for enhanced functionality of the system overall and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly affect the performance of your internet sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also find out that their latest versions require an updated Os to be able to function effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and you want to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own hosting server before and you are not sure how to do that or you simply don't have much time to take care of the hosting server, you can take advantage of the OS update service which is integrated in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can set up the latest patches for the OS which you have chosen for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that your apps are working correctly after that. The updates are carried out every week, so you'll constantly have the latest Operating System version and you'll not need to stress about any OS-related security issues.
