Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and functions separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is often ignored, but doing that may have lots of advantages for your internet sites. The most important reason to employ 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 individuals with destructive intentions to use these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could directly affect the functionality of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also know that their newest versions require an updated Operating System so as to work properly, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always wise.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting server before and you aren't certain how to do that or you just don't have the required time to manage the hosting server, you can take advantage of the OS update service which is integrated in our Managed Services package. Our admins can install the latest patches for the OS that you have picked for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that all your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are done each week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you will not have to bother about any OS-related security problems.
