A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update improve the overall performance of your websites, but it can also save you a lot of problems in the future. An update could be released for a lot of reasons, the most frequent being to fix recently found security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and alter the content which you have on the server. You can also see an improved overall performance of your web applications since updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it functions on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Additionally, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they might also require a later Operating system version that will have the needed software dependencies and will allow them to work adequately.
