A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is a crucial, though underestimated task. Not only can an update enhance the functionality of your websites, but it could also save you lots of problems down the road. An update may be released for a lot of reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content that you have on the server. You will also see an improved overall performance of your web apps as updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System 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 need a later OS version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to function properly.
