Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and functions independently from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that could have a wide range of benefits for your internet sites. The most essential reason to use the most recent version is that patches are frequently released to repair security holes in the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved performance of the system in general and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could instantly impact the performance of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also discover that their newest versions require an updated Operating System to be able to function properly, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a wise idea.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages 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 just do not have enough time to manage the hosting machine, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service which is integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the Operating system you have selected for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that all your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are carried out on a weekly basis, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you'll not have to concern yourself with any OS-related security issues.
