If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Os and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Os updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a quite important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more safe as updates often include security patches which take care of small issues which may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated every week as part of our Managed Services upgrade, which you could add to your plan at any time using your billing Control Panel. The service applies to all Os's that we supply for the servers and our admins will set up all software patches which have been officially released as to make certain that you have a stable and secure server for your websites. They'll also double-check if the software which you have installed is operating properly after the update. The service is a superb choice in case you don't have lots of experience running your own server or if you simply do not want to waste time on administration tasks.
