A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, though underrated task. Not only can an update boost the overall performance of your sites, but it can also save you lots of issues down the road. An update could be released for a variety of reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently found security holes, which may enable third-party individuals to access and modify the content that you have on the hosting server. You can also see an improved functionality of your web applications because updates may 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. Moreover, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they might need a later Operating system version that will have the needed software dependencies and will allow them to work adequately.
