A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a crucial, albeit underrated task. Not simply can an update enhance the general performance of your websites, but it could also save you lots of problems in the future. An update could be released for a variety of reasons, the most common being to fix recently identified security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and change the content you have on the hosting machine. You might also see an improved overall performance of your web apps because updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they may also require a later OS version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to operate adequately.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you would like to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own hosting machine before and you're not confident how to do that or you just don't have enough time to deal with the server, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service which is included in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the Operating system you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they shall make sure that all your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are done each week, so you will always have the latest Operating System version and you will not need to concern yourself with any OS-related security issues.
