A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, although underestimated task. Not simply can an update boost the functionality of your sites, but it can also save you a great deal of problems down the road. An update may be released for a variety of reasons, the most common being to fix recently identified security holes, which may enable third-party people to access and modify the content you have on the hosting machine. You can also see an improved functionality of your web programs as updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os 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 might need a later Operating system version that will have the required software dependencies and will permit them to work properly.
