A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is a crucial, albeit underestimated task. Not simply can an update boost the functionality of your internet sites, but it could also save you a great deal of problems in the future. An update may be released for several reasons, the most common being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content that you have on the hosting machine. You might also see an improved functionality of your web apps because updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it works on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Furthermore, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could also require a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to operate adequately.
