If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Os and you can later install server side apps directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the websites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more protected because updates usually include security patches which take care of small issues that may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers and you would like to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own server before and you are not certain how to do that or you simply do not have much time to deal with the hosting machine, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service which is included in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can set up the latest patches for the OS that you have chosen for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that all your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are carried out every week, so you'll constantly have the latest Operating System version and you won't have to bother about any OS-related security issues.
