A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is an essential, although underrated task. Not only can an update enhance the overall performance of your websites, but it will also save you a great deal of issues later on. An update may be released for a number of reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and alter the content that you have on the hosting server. You will also see an improved overall performance of your web applications as updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they might also require a later Operating system version which will have the required software dependencies and will permit them to work adequately.
