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, although underrated task. Not only can an update boost the general performance of your internet sites, but it can also save you lots of problems down the road. An update can be released for many different reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and alter the content that you have on the hosting server. You can also see an improved overall performance of your web applications because updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it works on as a way to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may also need a later Operating system version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to operate adequately.
