A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underrated task. Not simply can an update boost the overall performance of your websites, but it will also save you lots of problems down the road. An update can be released for a variety of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix newly identified security holes, which may enable third-party people to access and modify the content that you have on the hosting server. You will also see an improved performance of your web applications as updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on as a way to get the most out of the hardware. Furthermore, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could need a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will allow them to operate effectively.
