A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, although underestimated task. Not only can an update enhance the performance of your websites, but it can also save you lots of problems in the future. An update can be released for a lot of reasons, the most frequent being to fix recently found security holes, which may enable third-party people to access and change the content you have on the hosting machine. You might also see an improved efficiency of your web applications as updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on so as to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may also need a later Operating system version which will have the needed software dependencies and will allow them to function effectively.
