If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you can later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more secure as updates often include security patches that resolve small issues that may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and you wish to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own server before and you aren't sure how to do that or you just do not have enough time to deal with the hosting server, you can take advantage of the OS update service that's included in our Managed Services pack. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS that you have chosen for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that all your applications are working correctly after that. The updates are carried out each week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you'll not need to concern yourself with any OS-related security problems.
