If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Os updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for a number of reasons. A more modern OS version could have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps that you install. Your server will also be more secure because updates typically include security patches that fix small problems that may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
We can keep the Os on your dedicated server updated on a weekly basis as part of our Managed Services upgrade, that you will be able to add to your plan at any time via your billing Cp. The service is applicable to all Os's we supply for the hosting machines and our administrators will set up all software patches which have been officially released as to make sure that you have a stable and risk-free machine for your websites. They will also double-check if the software that you have installed is working properly after the update. The service is a superb choice if you do not have much experience running your own server or if you simply do not want to waste time on administration tasks.
