Each virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and operates independently from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually ignored, but doing that might have lots of benefits for your websites. The most important reason to use the most up-to-date version is that patches are usually released to deal with security holes in the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with harmful intentions to use these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved performance of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could instantly impact the efficiency of your internet sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also discover that their newest versions require an updated Os so as to function properly, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.

After each and every update our admins will make certain that all sites and offline applications you have on the server are operating properly.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Hosting
