A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, albeit underestimated task. Not only can an update improve the functionality of your sites, but it could also save you a great deal of troubles later on. An update can be released for a variety of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix newly found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content which you have on the hosting server. You can also see an improved efficiency of your web apps as updates might 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. In addition, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may also require a later Operating system version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will enable them to operate properly.
