A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underestimated task. Not simply can an update improve the functionality of your sites, but it will also save you a lot of issues down the road. An update can be released for several reasons, the most common being to fix recently found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and change the content that you have on the hosting machine. You might also see an improved functionality of your web programs because updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on so as to get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they might also require a later OS version which will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to function effectively.
