If you get a hosting server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side applications directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version may have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web applications that you install. Your server shall also be more safe because updates normally include security patches which take care of small problems which may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated servers and you wish to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own server before and you're not certain how to do that or you simply don't have the required time to take care of the hosting machine, you can take advantage of the OS update service that is integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can install the latest patches for the Operating system which you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they shall make certain that your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are done each week, so you'll always have the latest Operating System version and you won't have to worry about any OS-related security issues.
