A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update boost the overall performance of your websites, but it will also save you a great deal of issues later on. An update can be released for many different reasons, the most prevalent being to fix newly found security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and change the content you have on the server. You might also see an improved overall performance of your web apps since updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Additionally, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may also need a later OS version which will have the required software dependencies and will allow them to operate properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you wish 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 simply do not have much time to take care of the hosting server, you are 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 OS you have chosen for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll ensure that your applications are operating correctly after that. The updates are performed once a week, so you'll always have the latest Operating System version and you won't have to concern yourself with any OS-related security issues.
