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 apps directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Cp. While keeping the Os updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a quite important task for a number of reasons. A more modern OS version may have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps that you install. Your server shall also be more secure because updates usually include security patches that fix small issues that may allow unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent 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 effectively and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting 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 certain how to do that or you simply do not have much time to deal with the hosting server, you can take advantage of the OS update service that's included in our Managed Services package. Our admins can install the latest patches for the Operating system that you have selected for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll ensure that your applications are operating correctly after that. The updates are performed every week, so you will constantly have the latest Operating System version and you won't have to stress about any OS-related security issues.
