Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and operates separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually ignored, but doing that could have a wide range of advantages for your sites. The most important reason to use the newest version is that patches are frequently released to deal with security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for much better performance of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can instantly affect the performance of your internet sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their newest versions require an updated Os so as to function properly, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always recommended.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
In the event that you have a dedicated server from our company, we could update its Os for you as part of our Managed Services upgrade, so in the event that you have more important things to do or you are simply not tech-savvy and you're not confident how to do this, we can deal with this task. Our administrators will do the necessary to set up the latest update to the Operating System operating on your hosting machine without any service interruptions and will ensure that your sites and any other applications that you have installed are working properly once they are done with the update. You are able to get the Managed Services upgrade during the signup or through your billing Cp and have your Operating system updated once a week for a more secure software environment for your internet sites.
