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 important, although underestimated task. Not only can an update boost the performance of your internet sites, but it could also save you a lot of troubles down the road. An update could be released for several reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and alter the content you have on the hosting machine. You may also see an improved performance of your web programs as updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they might need a later OS version which will have the needed software dependencies and will permit them to work effectively.
