If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Os updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a quite important task for several reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the websites and web apps that you install. Your server will also be more secure as updates normally include security patches that take care of small problems which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our Virtual Private Servers, you'll be able to take advantage of our Managed Services pack, which incorporates a variety of admin tasks which our administrators can perform on your server. Among them you shall discover the Operating System update service, so in case you include the pack to your virtual private server plan, we'll keep your Operating system up-to-date all the time. This is valid for all three Os's we offer - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you won't need to concern yourself with server-side security issues and you can use it if you do not have much experience with maintaining a Linux server or if you simply do not have time to take care of such matters. After every update our admins will make certain that all sites and offline applications you have on the hosting server are functioning properly.
