A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and keeping the latter up-to-date is an important, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update boost the functionality of your internet sites, but it will also save you lots of troubles later on. An update may be released for a number of reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and alter the content you have on the hosting machine. You will also see an improved functionality of your web apps because updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Additionally, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could also need a later Operating system version that will have the required software dependencies and will enable them to operate properly.
