Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and functions independently from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the Operating system is frequently ignored, but doing that could have a wide range of benefits for your internet sites. The most significant reason to employ the newest version is that patches are frequently released to fix security holes in the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to take advantage of these holes and to access your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved efficiency of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can instantly influence the functionality of your sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also discover that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Os in order to work properly, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a good idea.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you could take full advantage of our Managed Services pack, which features a variety of administration tasks which our administrators can perform on your hosting server. Among them you'll find the Operating System update service, so in case you add the pack to your VPS server
plan, we will keep your Operating system up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all 3 Os's which we supply - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you won't need to worry about server-side security problems and you can use it if you don't have much experience with maintaining a Linux server or if you simply do not have time to handle such matters. After every single update our administrators will ensure that all sites and offline apps you have on the server are operating properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans
and you wish to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own server before and you're not sure how to do that or you simply don't have enough time to manage the server, you can take advantage of the OS update service that is integrated in our Managed Services package. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS that you have chosen for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll ensure that all of your applications are operating correctly after that. The updates are carried out on a weekly basis, so you will constantly have the latest Operating System version and you won't need to stress about any OS-related security problems.
