A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, although underestimated task. Not only can an update improve the functionality of your sites, but it could also save you a great deal of problems down the road. An update may be released for a number of reasons, the most frequent being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and change the content which you have on the server. You can also see an improved functionality of your web applications as updates may 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. Moreover, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they could need a later OS version which will have the required software dependencies and will enable them to function effectively.
