How to Disable Windows Update #
TradersVPS is a Managed VPS Provider. Unlike a VPS from other Providers, TradersVPS subscribers do not have to manage individual settings on the VPS to set it up for Trading Software. Windows Updates, power settings, and internet connection settings are managed by TradersVPS so that you don’t have to.
Windows Updates are a neccessary part of any Windows system. They are the only way to guarentee that your VPS is secure and safe from hackers that could steal your information.
TradersVPS has pre-configured your VPS’s Windows Update settings so that you don’t have to. The Windows Updates that your VPS needs will be downloaded and applied automatically in the background. However, unlike standard Windows Updates, your VPS will not be automatically rebooted to apply them. Since we do not want to interupt your automated trading software, rebooting your VPS to apply the updates will be up to each subscriber.
TradersVPS recommends rebooting your VPS at least once per month to finalize and activate any Windows Updates that have been downloaded and applied. If you do not reboot your VPS it can become unstable (and possible crash) and unsecure (allowing hackers to take advantage of it’s vulnerabilities).
TradersVPS is not responsible for any issues that occur due to a VPS that has not been kept up-to-date.
