A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and always keeping the latter up-to-date is a crucial, although underestimated task. Not simply can an update enhance the overall performance of your sites, but it can also save you lots of troubles down the road. An update may be released for several reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and modify the content you have on the server. You can also see an improved performance of your web applications because updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they could also need a later Operating system version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to work properly.
