A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and maintaining the latter up-to-date is an important, although underestimated task. Not simply can an update enhance the functionality of your websites, but it can also save you a great deal of issues later on. An update may be released for many different reasons, the most frequent being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and change the content which you have on the server. You will also see an improved functionality of your web apps because updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it functions on as a way to get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they could need a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to function properly.
