A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, albeit underestimated task. Not only can an update enhance the general performance of your internet sites, but it could also save you a great deal of problems later on. An update can be released for several reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may enable third-party people to access and alter the content you have on the server. You may also see an improved functionality of your web apps because updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may need a later OS version which will have the required software dependencies and will enable them to operate properly.
