A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and maintaining the latter up-to-date is an important, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update improve the overall performance of your websites, but it can also save you a lot of problems later on. An update can be released for a number of reasons, the most common being to fix newly found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content you have on the server. You might also see an improved performance of your web programs because updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions 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 that will have the required software dependencies and will enable them to operate effectively.
