If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps you install. Your server shall also be more protected because updates often include security patches that deal with small problems that may allow 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 effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
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 Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you're not sure how to do that or you just don't have much time to take care of the hosting server, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that is included in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can install the latest patches for the Operating system you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they shall ensure that all of your applications are working correctly after that. The updates are carried out every week, so you will constantly have the latest Os version and you won't need to bother about any OS-related security issues.
