A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underestimated task. Not only can an update boost the functionality of your sites, but it can also save you lots of problems later on. An update can be released for a variety of reasons, the most common being to fix recently discovered security holes, which may allow third-party people to access and change the content that you have on the server. You might also see an improved overall performance of your web apps as updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it works on as a way to get the most out of the hardware. Additionally, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they may also require a later OS version which will have the needed software dependencies and will allow them to work effectively.
