Every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Os and operates independently from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is usually ignored, but doing that might have quite a lot of advantages for your websites. The most important reason to use the most up-to-date version is that patches are typically released to fix security holes in the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved functionality of the system overall and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can immediately affect the efficiency of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also know that their most recent versions require an updated Os to be able to operate effectively, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a good idea.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server from our company, we could update its Operating System for you as part of our Managed Services upgrade, so when you have more important things to do or you are simply not tech-savvy and you're not certain how to conduct this, we can take care of this task. Our admins will do the necessary to set up the latest update to the Os running on your server with no service disruptions and will ensure that your internet sites and any other apps that you have set up are operating adequately once they're done with the update. You can get the Managed Services upgrade during the signup or through your billing Control Panel and have your OS updated every week for a more secure software environment for your websites.
