A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, although underrated task. Not only can an update boost the overall performance of your websites, but it can also save you a great deal of troubles later on. An update could be released for a number of reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly found security holes, which may enable third-party people to access and change the content which you have on the hosting server. You can also see an improved efficiency of your web applications since updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it functions on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Additionally, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they may also need a later Operating system version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to function properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated servers and you want to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own hosting machine before and you are not sure how to do that or you just don't have enough time to take care of the hosting machine, you can take advantage of the Operating system update service that's integrated in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the Operating system you have chosen for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that your apps are functioning correctly after that. The updates are carried out every week, so you will always have the latest Os version and you won't need to concern yourself with any OS-related security problems.
