A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and maintaining the latter up-to-date is an essential, albeit underestimated task. Not only can an update enhance the performance of your sites, but it can also save you a lot of problems in the future. An update can be released for several reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and modify the content you have on the server. You may also see an improved functionality of your web applications as updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Additionally, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could also need a later Operating system version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will allow them to work adequately.
