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 an essential, although underestimated task. Not only can an update improve the general performance of your sites, but it will also save you a great deal of problems down the road. An update may be released for a variety of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and modify the content which you have on the server. You may also see an improved efficiency of your web apps since updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it functions on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Furthermore, if you keep your apps up-to-date, they might also require a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to operate effectively.
