A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is an essential, albeit underrated task. Not only can an update enhance the functionality of your sites, but it will also save you a lot of troubles in the future. An update may be released for a variety of reasons, the most common being to fix newly found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and change the content which you have on the server. You will also see an improved efficiency of your web applications because updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Furthermore, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they could also need a later Operating system version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will enable them to operate effectively.
