A virtual or a dedicated hosting machine is a standalone machine, that has its own Os and keeping the latter up-to-date is a vital, albeit underrated task. Not simply can an update improve the overall performance of your internet sites, but it can also save you lots of troubles in the future. An update could be released for several reasons, the most common being to fix newly identified security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and alter the content that you have on the server. You might also see an improved overall performance of your web applications because updates can 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. Moreover, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they might also require a later Operating system version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to function adequately.

After each update our admins will make certain that all sites and offline apps you have on the hosting server are functioning properly.
