A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a vital, though underestimated task. Not simply can an update enhance the general performance of your sites, but it will also save you a lot of troubles in the future. An update could be released for a number of reasons, the most common being to fix recently found security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and alter the content you have on the hosting machine. You will also see an improved efficiency of your web applications as updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they might also require a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will enable them to operate properly.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Hosting
If you go for one of our virtual private servers plans but you do not have a lot of time to take care of the server maintenance or you're not quite experienced, you can take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade which we offer. Amongst other things, our admins will manage the Operating System updates for you, so you'll always have a secure and stable hosting machine. The updates are done on a weekly basis and after each of them our technical support support will ensure that any piece of software set up on the server is functioning correctly in order to avoid any incompatibility issues down the road. You can use the Managed services upgrade and the Operating System update service for each Operating system that we offer - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you obtain one of our dedicated hosting services and you wish 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 much time to take care of the server, you are able to take advantage of the OS update service that's integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can install the latest patches for the Operating system that you have picked for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll ensure that your apps are working correctly after that. The updates are done every week, so you'll constantly have the latest Os version and you won't have to stress about any OS-related security issues.
