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 important, albeit underestimated task. Not only can an update improve the general performance of your sites, but it could also save you lots of troubles later on. An update could be released for a number of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and change the content that you have on the server. You might 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 in order to get the most out of the hardware. In addition, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they might need a later Operating system version which will have the required software dependencies and will permit them to work adequately.
