A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update improve the general performance of your websites, but it will also save you a great deal of troubles later on. An update may be released for several reasons, the most frequent being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may enable third-party people to access and alter the content which you have on the hosting machine. You might also see an improved functionality of your web apps because updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions 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 Operating system version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to operate adequately.
