A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, though underrated task. Not only can an update boost the overall performance of your websites, but it can also save you a lot of problems down the road. An update can be released for a number of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may enable third-party individuals to access and modify the content which you have on the hosting machine. You may also see an improved overall performance of your web apps since updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it functions on so as to get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they might need a later OS version which will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to function properly.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you would like to have the latest version of the Os running on your VPS servers, you could take advantage of the Operating system update service we provide as part of our Managed Services upgrade. Our skilled administrators shall install all patches which have been released for the OS which you have chosen for your hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS. They will also ensure that there aren't any issues after the update with any software that you have installed on the VPS. The service is carried out every week and it is a great opportunity to have a protected and stable server at all times in case you don't have a lot of experience to update the Os yourself or you do not have time to maintain the hosting server.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated servers and you would like to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting server before and you aren't confident how to do that or you just don't have much time to manage the hosting server, you can take advantage of the Operating system update service which is integrated in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can install the latest patches for the OS which you have chosen for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that all of your apps are working correctly after that. The updates are performed each week, so you will always have the latest Operating System version and you'll not need to stress about any OS-related security issues.
