If you get a hosting server 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 applications directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a rather important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps you install. Your server shall also be more safe as updates typically include security patches that fix small issues that may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and you wish to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own server before and you aren't sure how to do that or you simply don't have much time to deal with the hosting machine, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that is included in our Managed Services pack. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS you have selected for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll ensure that your applications are working correctly after that. The updates are done each week, so you will always have the latest Os version and you'll not need to concern yourself with any OS-related security issues.
