Each virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and works independently from the servers of other customers. Updating the OS is usually overlooked, but doing that might have lots of benefits for your websites. The most significant reason to use the latest version is that patches are usually released to repair security holes within the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with harmful intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for enhanced efficiency of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly influence 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 Os so as to work effectively, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and you would like to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you are not sure how to do that or you simply do not have much time to deal with the server, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that is integrated in our Managed Services package. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS you have selected for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that all of your applications are working correctly after that. The updates are carried out once a week, so you'll constantly have the latest Operating System version and you will not have to bother about any OS-related security issues.
