A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, albeit underestimated task. Not only can an update enhance the general performance of your internet sites, but it could also save you a lot of issues later on. An update could be released for a variety of reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and modify the content which you have on the server. You may also see an improved overall performance of your web apps because updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Furthermore, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could also need a later OS version that will have the needed software dependencies and will allow them to work adequately.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you wish to have the latest version of the Os running on your VPS servers, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service we offer you as part of our Managed Services upgrade. Our skilled administrators will install all patches which have been released for the OS which you have chosen for your server - Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS. They shall also make certain that there are no issues after the update with any software that you have installed on the VPS. The service is performed every week and it's a great opportunity to have a protected and stable server at all times in the event that you do not have a lot of experience to update the Operating System yourself or you do not have time to take care of the server.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated servers and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own server before and you're not certain how to do that or you just don't have enough time to take care of the server, you can take advantage of the Operating system update service that's included in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS that you have picked for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make certain that all of your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are performed on a weekly basis, so you will constantly have the latest Os version and you'll not need to stress about any OS-related security problems.
