A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is an important, though underrated task. Not simply can an update boost the performance of your internet sites, but it will also save you a lot of problems later on. An update could be released for a lot of reasons, the most widespread 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 will also see an improved functionality of your web applications since updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Furthermore, 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 allow them to work properly.
