A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underrated task. Not simply can an update enhance the overall performance of your websites, but it can also save you a lot of problems later on. An update can be released for a number of reasons, the most frequent being to fix newly found security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and modify the content which you have on the server. You will also see an improved functionality of your web apps because updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could also require a later OS version which will have the required software dependencies and will enable them to work adequately.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you wish to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you are not certain how to do that or you just do not have the required time to take care of the hosting server, you can 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 Operating system you have chosen for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that all your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are carried out every week, so you'll constantly have the latest Os version and you'll not have to concern yourself with any OS-related security issues.
