Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and works independently from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually ignored, but doing that could have a wide range of benefits for your sites. The most important reason to employ the newest version is that patches are usually released to deal with security holes in the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to use these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could directly affect the functionality of your websites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also know that their latest versions require an updated Operating System in order to work properly, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you have a dedicated server from our company, we could update its Os for you as a part of our Managed Services upgrade, so if you have more important things to do or you are simply not tech-savvy and you aren't certain how to do this, we can handle this task. Our administrators shall do the necessary to set up the latest update to the Operating System running on your server without service interruptions and will make sure that your websites and any other apps which you have set up are working adequately once they're done with the update. You'll be able to get the Managed Services upgrade during the signup or from your billing Cp and have your Operating system updated every week for a more secure software environment for your sites.
