If you get a server of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for a number of reasons. A more modern Operating system version could 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 secure as updates often include security patches which resolve small problems which may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you would like to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own hosting machine before and you're not confident how to do that or you just do not have the required time to take care of the hosting machine, you can take advantage of the Operating system update service that is included in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS you have selected for the hosting server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make sure that all of your apps are functioning correctly after that. The updates are done once a week, so you will constantly have the latest Operating System version and you will not have to stress about any OS-related security problems.
