A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update boost the overall performance of your sites, but it can also save you lots of issues later on. An update can be released for several reasons, the most prevalent being to fix newly found security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and change the content you have on the server. You might also see an improved performance of your web programs as updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on so as to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they might also require a later OS version that will have the needed software dependencies and will allow them to operate effectively.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Hosting
If you use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services pack, which incorporates numerous administration tasks our administrators can perform on your hosting machine. Among them you'll find the Operating System update service, so if you include the pack to your virtual private server plan, we'll keep your OS up-to-date consistently. This is valid for all 3 Os's that we supply - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you won't need to worry about server-side security issues and you can use it if you do not have much experience with maintaining a Linux server or if you simply don't have time to deal with such matters. After every update our admins will make sure that all sites and offline apps that you have on the hosting machine are working properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our dedicated web hosting and you want to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own server before and you aren't sure how to do that or you simply do not have enough time to manage the server, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service which is integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the Operating system that you have picked for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that all of your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are done each week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you will not have to stress about any OS-related security problems.
