If you get a server of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a rather important task for several reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web applications which you install. Your server will also be more secure as updates usually include security patches that deal with small problems which may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans and you wish to have an up-to-date Os, but you have not managed your own hosting server before and you're not confident how to do that or you just do not have the required time to deal with the hosting machine, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service that is integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can install the latest patches for the OS which you have selected for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make certain that all your applications are functioning correctly after that. The updates are done every week, so you'll always have the latest Operating System version and you will not need to worry about any OS-related security problems.
