If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Os and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for a number of reasons. A more modern Operating system version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more secure since updates usually include security patches which deal with small problems 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, may require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their 100 % capabilities.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated servers and you want to have an up-to-date Operating System, but you have not managed your own hosting machine before and you're not certain how to do that or you just do not have the required time to deal with the server, you are able to take advantage of the OS update service that's included in our Managed Services bundle. Our admins can set up the latest patches for the OS which you have picked for the server - CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu, and they'll make sure that all your apps are operating correctly after that. The updates are performed once a week, so you'll always have the latest Os version and you'll not need to worry about any OS-related security problems.
