Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and operates independently from the hosting servers of other clients. Updating the OS is usually overlooked, but doing that could have quite a lot of benefits for your sites. The most important reason to use the newest version is that patches are typically released to repair security holes in the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to use these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for improved performance of the system as a whole and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could instantly influence the performance of your internet sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also discover that their latest versions require an updated Operating System so as to operate effectively, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a wise idea.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you employ one of our Virtual Private Servers, you can benefit from our Managed Services pack, which includes a variety of administration tasks which our administrators can perform on your hosting machine. Among them you shall find the Operating System update service, so in the event that you include the pack to your VPS server plan, we'll keep your Operating system up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all three Os's that we offer you - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you'll not have to worry about server-side security issues and you can employ it if you don't have a lot of experience with maintaining a Linux machine or if you simply don't have time to deal with such matters. After each update our administrators will make sure that all sites and offline applications which you have on the hosting server are working properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server from our company, we could update its Operating System for you as a part of our Managed Services upgrade, so when you have more important things to do or you're simply not tech-savvy and you aren't sure how to complete this, we can deal with this task. Our administrators shall do the necessary to install the latest update to the Operating System working on your server with no service interruptions and will ensure that your sites and any other apps which you have installed are operating adequately once they are done with the update. You can get the Managed Services upgrade during the signup or through your billing Control Panel and have your Operating system updated weekly for a more secure software environment for your websites.
