A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, although underestimated task. Not simply can an update improve the overall performance of your internet sites, but it will also save you a lot of problems later on. An update can be released for a lot of reasons, the most frequent being to fix newly found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content which you have on the hosting machine. You might also see an improved performance of your web applications as updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Moreover, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could also require a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will enable them to operate effectively.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Servers
If you use one of our Virtual Private Servers, you could benefit from our Managed Services pack, which features a variety of administration tasks which our administrators can perform on your server. Among them you will discover the Operating System update service, so in case you include the pack to your VPS server plan, we'll keep your OS up-to-date all the time. This is valid for all 3 Os's we offer you - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you will not have to be concerned about server-side security problems and you can use it if you do not have a lot of experience with maintaining a Linux machine or if you simply don't have time to handle such matters. After every single update our administrators will make certain that all internet sites and offline applications that you have on the hosting server are functioning properly.
