Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Os and functions separately from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the OS is frequently neglected, but doing that may have lots of benefits for your websites. The most important reason to use the most recent version is that patches are frequently 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 access your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly affect the functionality of your websites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also know that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Operating System to be able to work properly, so keeping the OS up-to-date is always wise.

If you would like to have the latest version of the Os running on your VPS servers
, you can take advantage of the Operating system update service which we provide as a part of our Managed Services upgrade. Our qualified administrators shall install all patches which have been released for the OS you have picked for your hosting machine - Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS. They shall also make sure that there aren't any problems after the update with any software which you have installed on the VPS. The service is carried out each week and it's a great opportunity to have a secure and stable server at all times in case you don't have lots of experience to update the Operating System yourself or you do not have time to manage the server.
Weekly OS Update in Dedicated Servers

and you want to have an up-to-date Os, but you haven't managed your own server before and you're not certain how to do that or you just don't have the required time to manage the hosting machine, you can take advantage of the OS update service which is integrated in our Managed Services pack.
