If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the internet sites and web apps which you install. Your server will also be more protected because updates typically include security patches which deal with small problems that may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.

Amongst other things, our administrators will manage the Os updates for you, so you'll consistently have a secure and stable hosting server. The updates are performed on a weekly basis and after each of them our support team will ensure that any piece of software set up on the hosting machine is operating properly as to avoid any incompatibility complications down the road.

Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you have a dedicated server from our company, we can update its Os for you as part of our Managed Services upgrade, so in case you have more important things to do or you're simply not tech-savvy and you are not sure how to complete this, we can take care of this task. Our administrators will do the necessary to install the latest update to the Os operating on your server without service disruptions and will ensure that your internet sites and any other programs that you have set up are working effectively once they're done with the update. You are able to get the Managed Services upgrade during the signup or through your billing Cp and have your OS updated each week for a more secure software environment for your internet sites.
