A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update boost the general performance of your sites, but it will also save you lots of problems down the road. An update could be released for several reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently found security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and modify the content that you have on the hosting server. You may also see an improved efficiency of your web applications since updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Additionally, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may need a later Operating system version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will enable them to work properly.
Weekly OS Update in VPS Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our Virtual Private Servers, you'll be able to take full advantage of our Managed Services pack, which includes a number of admin tasks our administrators can perform on your hosting machine. Among them you'll find the Operating System update service, so in case you add the pack to your virtual private server plan, we will keep your Operating system 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 won't need to worry about server-side security issues and you can use it if you do not have much experience with maintaining a Linux machine or if you simply do not have time to deal with such matters. After each and every update our administrators will make certain that all internet sites and offline applications that you have on the server are functioning properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
We can keep the Os on your dedicated server updated on a weekly basis as an element of our Managed Services upgrade, that you will be able to add to your plan at any time using your billing Control Panel. The service is applicable to all Os's that we offer for the servers and our administrators will install all software patches which have been officially released as to make certain that you have a reliable and risk-free server for your internet sites. They'll also double-check if the software that you have installed is functioning properly after the update. The service is a superb choice in case you do not have a lot of experience running your own hosting machine or if you simply do not want to lose time on administration tasks.
