A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, that has its own Operating System and always keeping the latter up-to-date is a crucial, though underestimated task. Not only can an update enhance the overall performance of your websites, but it can also save you a great deal of issues in the future. An update can be released for several reasons, the most widespread being to fix newly discovered security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and modify the content which you have on the server. You may also see an improved performance of your web applications since updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could also need a later Operating system version that will have the needed software dependencies and will enable them to work properly.
