A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is a crucial, though underestimated task. Not simply can an update improve the overall performance of your internet sites, but it will also save you a lot of troubles in the future. An update could be released for several reasons, the most common being to fix recently found security holes, which may enable third-party people to access and alter the content that you have on the server. You can also see an improved efficiency of your web applications as 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 programs up-to-date, they might also need a later Operating system version which will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to work adequately.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated servers and you wish to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own hosting server before and you are not sure how to do that or you just do not have enough time to take care of the hosting machine, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service which is integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the Operating system you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will ensure that all your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are performed once a week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you will not need to concern yourself with any OS-related security issues.
