A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, though underestimated task. Not simply can an update improve the functionality of your sites, but it could also save you a lot of issues later on. An update can be released for a variety of reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently found security holes, which may enable third-party people to access and modify the content which you have on the hosting machine. You might also see an improved functionality of your web programs because updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on as a way to get the most out of the hardware. Moreover, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may also require a later Operating system version which will have the required software dependencies and will permit them to work adequately.
Weekly OS Update in VPS
If you want to have the latest version of the Os running on your virtual private servers, you could leverage the Operating system update service that we offer as part of our Managed Services upgrade. Our qualified administrators will set up all patches that have been released for the OS you have chosen for your server - Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS. They'll also make certain that there aren't any issues after the update with any software that you have installed on the VPS. The service is done on a weekly basis and it's a great opportunity to have a secure and stable server at all times if you don't have much experience to update the Os yourself or you don't have time to manage the hosting machine.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
If you obtain one of our dedicated servers hosting packages and you would like to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own server before and you're not confident how to do that or you simply do not have the required time to manage the hosting server, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service that's integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS that you have picked for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that your apps are working correctly after that. The updates are performed once a week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you won't need to stress about any OS-related security problems.
