A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and maintaining 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 could also save you a great deal of troubles down the road. An update can be released for a number of reasons, the most common being to fix recently found security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and change the content that you have on the server. You will also see an improved overall performance of your web apps as updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it works on in order 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 enable them to function properly.
