If you get a server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a quite important task for a number of reasons. A newer OS version could have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more safe as updates often include security patches which fix small issues that may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both increased 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 VPS Servers
If you opt for one of our VPS servers plans but you don't have enough time to handle the server maintenance or you are not very experienced, you can take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade which we provide. Among other things, our admins will handle the Os updates for you, so you'll constantly have a secure and stable hosting server. The updates are done on a weekly basis and after each of them our technical support support will make certain that any piece of software installed on the hosting server is functioning adequately in order to avoid any incompatibility issues in the future. You could use the Managed services upgrade and the Os update service for each Operating system that we provide - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian.
