Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and works separately from the servers of other clients. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that may have quite a lot of advantages for your sites. The most significant reason to employ the most recent version is that patches are frequently released to repair security holes inside the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to use these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system overall and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could immediately affect the performance of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also discover that their newest versions require an updated Os in order to operate effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always recommended.
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 haven't managed your own server before and you aren't sure how to do that or you just don't have much time to deal with the server, you are able to 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 which you have selected for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are done each week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you won't have to worry about any OS-related security problems.
