Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and functions independently from the servers of other customers. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that may have a wide range of benefits for your websites. The most important reason to use the latest version is that patches are frequently released to repair security holes within the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to use these holes and to access your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better functionality of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can immediately influence the performance of your internet sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also discover that their most recent versions require an updated Os to be able to work effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always a wise idea.

Among other things, our administrators will take care of the Operating System updates for you, so you'll always have a secure and stable hosting machine. The updates are carried out on a weekly basis and after each one our technical support support will make sure that any piece of software installed on the hosting machine is running correctly so as to avoid any incompatibility complications later on.
