A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a vital, though underrated task. Not only can an update improve the performance of your websites, but it will also save you a great deal of troubles down the road. An update may be released for a variety of reasons, the most common being to fix newly identified security holes, which may enable third-party individuals to access and alter the content that you have on the server. You will also see an improved performance of your web programs because updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on so as to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they may need a later Operating system version which will have the required software dependencies and will allow them to function properly.

Our admins will do the necessary to set up the latest update to the Operating System working on your hosting server with no service interruptions and will ensure that your sites and any other apps that you have set up are operating effectively once they are done with the update.
