Each virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and functions separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that could have a wide range of advantages for your websites. The most significant reason to employ the latest version is that patches are usually released to fix security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with destructive intentions to use these holes and to access your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better functionality of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can immediately influence the performance of your websites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also discover that their latest versions require an updated Operating System so as to operate properly, consequently keeping the OS up-to-date is always recommended.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated servers and you want to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own hosting server before and you aren't sure how to do that or you just don't have much time to manage the hosting server, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service that is included in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can install the latest patches for the OS which you have picked for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make certain that your applications are operating correctly after that. The updates are done each week, so you will always have the latest Operating System version and you won't have to bother about any OS-related security issues.
