If you get a server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. While keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more secure because updates typically include security patches which deal with small issues that may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent 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 properly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and you would like to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own server before and you aren't certain how to do that or you just do not have enough time to manage the server, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service that is integrated in our Managed Services package. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS you have chosen for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they shall make sure that all of your applications are operating correctly after that. The updates are performed each week, so you'll constantly have the latest Os version and you'll not need to concern yourself with any OS-related security problems.
