If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Os and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A newer Operating system version may have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web apps that you install. Your server shall also be more secure since updates normally include security patches which deal with small problems that may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated each week as part of our Managed Services upgrade, which you will be able to add to your plan whenever you want through your billing Control Panel. The service applies to all Operating Systems that we provide for the hosting machines and our admins will install all software patches which have been officially released in order to make certain that you have a stable and secure hosting server for your sites. They'll also double-check if the software which you have installed is working properly after the update. The service is a great choice if you don't have lots of experience running your own server or if you simply don't want to waste time on administration tasks.
