If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the internet sites and web apps that you install. Your server shall also be more safe as updates normally include security patches that take care of small issues that may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
If you get one of our Linux dedicated hosting and you wish to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own hosting server before and you aren't certain how to do that or you simply don't have enough time to deal with the server, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that's integrated in our Managed Services package. Our admins can install the latest patches for the Operating system you have picked for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make certain that your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are done once a week, so you'll constantly have the latest Os version and you'll not have to concern yourself with any OS-related security issues.
