If you get a hosting server of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Os and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A newer OS version could have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the internet sites and web apps that you install. Your server will also be more protected because updates normally include security patches which take care of small issues which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you haven't managed your own server before and you aren't sure how to do that or you simply don't have enough time to deal with the hosting machine, you'll be able to take advantage of the Operating system update service which is integrated in our Managed Services pack. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS which you have selected for the hosting machine - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they will make certain that all of your applications are operating correctly after that. The updates are performed on a weekly basis, so you will constantly have the latest Os version and you won't need to worry about any OS-related security problems.
