You might as well add NTP (Network Time Protocol) to the server. It will go along nicely with the other services.

Hey thanks for your suggestion, just had a small follow up question, I'm sort of new to the whole sysadmin thing, do people often use a NTP server to perform some task?

An NTP server is used to provide accurate time to all the devices on the network. It is very easy to set up. You can use the ntp or chrony package. There are public NTP server available on the internet just like public DNS servers. Use the NTP servers closest to you.
