Every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Os and operates independently from the servers of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently overlooked, but doing that may have a wide range of advantages for your internet sites. The most essential reason to use the latest version is that patches are frequently released to deal with security holes inside the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for enhanced functionality of the system in general and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can instantly affect the functionality of your internet sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also find out that their latest versions require an updated Operating System to be able to operate effectively, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you choose one of our VPS servers
plans but you do not have enough time to take care of the server maintenance or you aren't really experienced, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade that we offer. Among other things, our administrators will manage the Os updates for you, so you'll consistently have a secure and stable server. The updates are performed on a weekly basis and after each our tech support team will make certain that any piece of software set up on the hosting server is functioning correctly so as to avoid any incompatibility issues down the road. You are able to use the Managed services upgrade and the Os update service for each Operating system that we offer you - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans
and you wish to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own server before and you're not certain how to do that or you simply do not have the required time to deal with the server, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that is integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our administrators can set up the latest patches for the OS you have selected for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that your applications are operating correctly after that. The updates are done every week, so you will always have the latest Os version and you'll not have to concern yourself with any OS-related security problems.
