A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update enhance the general performance of your websites, but it will also save you a great deal of problems later on. An update can be released for several reasons, the most common being to fix newly identified security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and modify the content that you have on the hosting server. You may also see an improved efficiency of your web apps because updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it functions on as a way to get the most out of the hardware. Moreover, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could also need a later OS version which will have the required software dependencies and will permit them to function adequately.
