If you get a server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version could have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more secure since updates typically include security patches which take care of small issues that may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
We can keep the Operating System on your dedicated server updated on a weekly basis as part of our Managed Services upgrade, that you can add to your plan whenever you want using your billing Control Panel. The service is applicable to all Operating Systems we offer for the servers and our administrators shall install all software patches that have been officially released so as to make sure that you have a stable and secure machine for your websites. They'll also double-check if the software that you have installed is functioning properly after the update. The service is an excellent choice if you do not have much experience running your own hosting machine or if you simply don't want to lose time on administration tasks.
