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 boost the functionality of your websites, but it can also save you a great deal of troubles later on. An update could be released for a number of reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content that you have on the server. You may also see an improved efficiency of your web applications as updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it functions on so as to get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could also need a later OS version which will have the required software dependencies and will permit them to operate adequately.
