Each virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and functions separately from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that may have a wide range of benefits for your websites. The most essential reason to use the latest version is that patches are frequently released to repair security holes in the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced functionality of the system as a whole and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could directly impact the efficiency of your websites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also discover that their most recent versions require an updated Operating System to be able to function effectively, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.

Weekly OS Update in VPS

If you take advantage of one of our Virtual Private Servers, you'll be able to take advantage of our Managed Services pack, which features a number of admin tasks our administrators can perform on your hosting machine. Among them you'll find the Operating System update service, so in case you include the pack to your virtual private server plan, we'll keep your OS up-to-date on a regular basis. This is valid for all three Os's that we provide - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you'll not have to be concerned about server-side security issues and you can use it if you do not have loads of experience with maintaining a Linux server or if you simply do not have time to take care of such matters. After each update our admins will ensure that all websites and offline applications you have on the server are functioning properly.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our Linux dedicated hosting and you wish to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own hosting server before and you are not confident how to do that or you just don't have much time to take care of the server, you are able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that is integrated in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make certain that all your apps are working correctly after that. The updates are done every week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you will not have to stress about any OS-related security issues.
