If you get a hosting server of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for a number of reasons. A newer Operating system version could have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web apps you install. Your server shall also be more protected since updates normally include security patches which resolve small issues which may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their 100 % capabilities.

Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers

If you wish to have the latest version of the Operating System running on your VPS servers, you could leverage the OS update service which we offer as part of our Managed Services upgrade. Our knowledgeable admins shall set up all patches that have been released for the Operating system which you have picked for your hosting machine - Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS. They shall also make sure that there aren't any problems after the update with any software that you have installed on the VPS. The service is performed on a weekly basis and it's a great opportunity to have a protected and stable hosting server at all times in the event that you do not have much experience to update the Os yourself or you don't have time to maintain the server.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our dedicated servers and you would like to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you're not confident how to do that or you just do not have enough time to take care of 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 set up the latest patches for the Operating system which you have selected for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they shall ensure that all your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are performed each week, so you will always have the latest Operating System version and you won't need to worry about any OS-related security problems.
