Each virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and operates independently from the servers of other clients. Updating the Operating system is frequently neglected, but doing that might have quite a lot of benefits for your sites. The most essential reason to use the newest version is that patches are usually released to repair security holes in the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with harmful intentions to use these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for enhanced efficiency of the system as a whole and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can instantly affect the functionality of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also find out that their most recent versions require an updated Os to be able to function properly, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you choose one of our VPS servers
packages but you don't have enough time to take care of the hosting machine maintenance or you aren't really experienced, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade that we provide. Among other things, our admins will handle the Operating System updates for you, so you'll always have a secure and stable hosting server. The updates are done on a weekly basis and after each of them our technical support support will make certain that any piece of software installed on the server is functioning adequately so as to avoid any incompatibility problems later on. You'll be able to use the Managed services upgrade and the Operating System update service for each OS that we offer - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our Linux dedicated servers
and you wish to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting server before and you are not confident how to do that or you just don't have the required time to take care of the hosting machine, you are able to take advantage of the OS update service that is integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS which you have chosen for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that your applications are working correctly after that. The updates are done every week, so you will always have the latest Operating System version and you won't have to worry about any OS-related security problems.
