Do I need to install Windows updates myself on the VPS I rent from you?

The client is responsible for updating and administering the operating system on the server. This is because only the client has administrative access to the server. We do not manage or administer the OS on your VPS (unless otherwise expressly provided in a separate service agreement ). This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that security patches and updates are installed in a timely manner. Failing to do so may result in vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious actors. Additionally, it is the responsibility of the client to keep their operating system up to date. In summary, it is important that the client takes care to properly update and administer their server's operating system. Failure to do so could result in serious consequences.

As a server administrator, you are responsible for keeping your system up to date. Microsoft and other operating systems developers release new updates on a regular basis, and it is important that you install these updates as soon as possible. Updates often include security fixes, and failing to install them can leave your system vulnerable to attack. In addition, updates can also include new features and performance improvements. As a result, it is essential that you keep your system up to date by installing all new updates as they become available.

Depending on your use case, you may also need to install updates for other software that you're running on your VPS. Keeping your VPS up-to-date is essential for ensuring the security and stability of your system.

Imagine that you are renting an apartment. You, as the tenant, are responsible for monitoring the condition of the apartment, its appearance and safety. Similarly, when you rent a virtual server, you are responsible for its condition. The server is located in a data center and is connected to the Internet. You are responsible for the security. If something goes wrong with the server on your level, it is your responsibility to fix it. The bottom line is that when you rent a virtual server, you are responsible for its internal condition.

Now imagine you are a landlord. You have to watch out for tenants who may not care for their apartments and common areas. Not only that, but you also have to monitor the condition of the building as a whole. This is where we come in as a cloud server provider. We can help you keep an eye on your property so you can focus on your business. Your server is a private area that we do not enter without your permission or in case of an emergency. Thus, the responsibility for monitoring the internal state of your server and managing your server lies entirely with you.
