A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and maintaining the latter up-to-date is an essential, albeit underrated task. Not simply can an update boost the performance of your sites, but it can also save you a lot of issues later on. An update may be released for a variety of reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content you have on the hosting machine. You will also see an improved efficiency of your web applications as updates could 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. Furthermore, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they may also require a later Operating system version that will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to operate properly.
