A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, though underrated task. Not only can an update boost the performance of your websites, but it can also save you lots of problems later on. An update could be released for a lot of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content that you have on the server. You can also see an improved functionality of your web programs because updates may 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. Furthermore, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they might need a later OS version that will have the needed software dependencies and will allow them to work effectively.
