A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, though underestimated task. Not simply can an update boost the overall performance of your websites, but it will also save you a lot of issues down the road. An update may be released for several reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly identified security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and change the content which you have on the hosting server. You might also see an improved performance of your web apps because updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on so as to get the most out of the hardware. Furthermore, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they might need a later Operating system version which will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to function effectively.

Among them you shall find the Os update service, so if you include the pack to your VPS server plan, we shall keep your OS up-to-date consistently. This is valid for all three Os's we offer - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you will not have to concern yourself with server-side security issues and you can use it if you do not have loads of experience with maintaining a Linux machine or if you simply don't have time to deal with such matters. After each update our admins will make sure that all internet sites and offline applications which you have on the hosting server are functioning properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
We can keep the Os on your dedicated server updated on a weekly basis as an element of our Managed Services upgrade, that you could add to your plan at any time via your billing Control Panel. The service applies to all Os's we supply for the servers and our administrators will set up all software patches that have been officially released in order to make certain that you have a reliable and secure hosting server for your internet sites. They will also double-check if the software which you have installed is working properly after the update. The service is a superb choice in the event that you don't have a lot of experience running your own hosting server or if you simply don't want to lose time on administration tasks.
