If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Os and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a rather important task for a variety of reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web apps that you install. Your server will also be more safe since updates normally include security patches which deal with small problems that may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, might 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 servers hosting packages and you wish to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you are not confident how to do that or you simply don't have enough time to take care of the hosting machine, you'll be able to take advantage of the OS update service which is included in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS that you have picked for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are done every week, so you will always have the latest Operating System version and you will not need to bother about any OS-related security problems.
