A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, although underestimated task. Not only can an update improve the functionality of your websites, but it will also save you a lot of troubles later on. An update may be released for a variety of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and modify the content that you have on the hosting server. You might also see an improved efficiency of your web programs because updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could need a later OS version that will have the needed software dependencies and will permit them to operate properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and you would like to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own hosting server before and you're not certain how to do that or you just don't have much time to deal with the hosting server, you are able to take advantage of the OS update service that is integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the Operating system you have picked for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that all of your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are done once a week, so you'll constantly have the latest Operating System version and you won't need to concern yourself with any OS-related security problems.
