If you get a hosting 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 websites through a hosting Cp. While keeping the Os updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern OS version may 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 protected as updates typically include security patches that deal with small problems that may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.

Among them you shall discover the Os update service, so in the event that you include the pack to your VPS server plan, we'll keep your OS up-to-date consistently. This is valid for all 3 Operating Systems which we offer you - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. With this service, you won't need to be worried about server-side security issues and you can use it if you do not have a lot of experience with maintaining a Linux server or if you simply don't have time to deal with such matters. After every update our administrators will make certain that all websites and offline applications which you have on the hosting server are working properly.
