If you get a server of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates typically include security patches that fix small problems which may enable unauthorized individuals 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 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and you want 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 do not have the required time to deal with the hosting machine, you are able to take advantage of the OS update service that's included in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can set up the latest patches for the OS that you have selected for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll ensure that your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are carried out on a weekly basis, so you will always have the latest Os version and you will not have to bother about any OS-related security issues.
