A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, though underrated task. Not simply can an update improve the general performance of your internet sites, but it could also save you a great deal of troubles later on. An update could be released for a number of reasons, the most common being to fix recently identified security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and change the content that you have on the hosting machine. You will also see an improved efficiency of your web apps since updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it functions on so as to get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could also require a later Operating system version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will allow them to work effectively.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and you wish to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own server before and you're not certain how to do that or you simply don't have enough time to take care of the hosting machine, you are able to take advantage of the Operating system update service which is integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS which you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will ensure that all your applications are operating correctly after that. The updates are done on a weekly basis, so you will constantly have the latest Operating System version and you won't need to bother about any OS-related security issues.
