A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underrated task. Not simply can an update boost the functionality of your websites, but it will also save you a lot of issues down the road. An update may be released for a lot of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently found security holes, which may enable third-party individuals to access and alter the content which you have on the server. You will also see an improved functionality of your web applications because 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 could also need a later Operating system version that will have the needed software dependencies and will permit them to function properly.
