If you get a hosting server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for a number of reasons. A more modern OS version could have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web applications which you install. Your server shall also be more safe since updates normally include security patches which take care of small problems that may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our dedicated servers and you would like to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own server before and you're not confident how to do that or you just do not have enough time to take care of the hosting machine, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that's included in our Managed Services package. Our administrators can install the latest patches for the OS which you have selected for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll ensure that all your apps are working correctly after that. The updates are performed every week, so you'll constantly have the latest Operating System version and you'll not need to worry about any OS-related security issues.
