A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, albeit underestimated task. Not simply can an update enhance the general performance of your sites, but it could also save you a great deal of issues down the road. An update could be released for several reasons, the most frequent being to fix recently found security holes, which may enable third-party individuals to access and change the content you have on the hosting machine. You will also see an improved functionality of your web applications since updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on so as to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could need a later Operating system version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will enable them to operate adequately.
