If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a rather important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates typically include security patches that resolve small problems which may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you have a dedicated server from our company, we can easily update its Operating System for you as a part of our Managed Services upgrade, so when you have more important things to do or you're simply not tech-savvy and you are not confident how to do this, we can deal with this task. Our admins will do the necessary to install the latest update to the Os working on your hosting machine without service interruptions and will make sure that your sites and any other programs that you have installed are working properly once they are done with the update. You can get the Managed Services upgrade during the signup or from your billing Control Panel and have your OS updated every week for a more secure software environment for your sites.
