A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is a crucial, though underrated task. Not only can an update improve the overall performance of your sites, but it will also save you a great deal of issues down the road. An update could be released for several reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently identified security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and modify the content you have on the hosting server. You will also see an improved performance of your web applications because updates can also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Additionally, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may also need a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will allow them to operate effectively.
