If you get a server of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a quite important task for several reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more protected as updates typically include security patches which take care of small problems which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated every week as a part of our Managed Services upgrade, which you will be able to add to your plan whenever you want via your billing Control Panel. The service is applicable to all Operating Systems we provide for the servers and our administrators will install all software patches which have been officially released so as to ensure that you have a stable and risk-free machine for your websites. They'll also double-check if the software which you have installed is functioning correctly after the update. The service is an outstanding choice in case you do not have lots of experience running your own hosting server or if you simply do not want to lose time on administration tasks.
