A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is a crucial, although underestimated task. Not simply can an update boost the overall performance of your websites, but it can also save you a great deal of troubles in the future. An update could be released for a number of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content you have on the server. You will also see an improved overall performance of your web apps as updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on so as to get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could also need a later Operating system version that will have the required software dependencies and will enable them to work properly.
