A virtual or a dedicated server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and maintaining the latter up-to-date is an important, though underrated task. Not only can an update improve the functionality of your internet sites, but it can also save you lots of problems down the road. An update can be released for a variety of reasons, the most frequent being to fix newly found security holes, which may permit third-party people to access and modify the content you have on the hosting server. You might also see an improved performance of your web applications since updates could also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it operates on as a way to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your programs up-to-date, they could also require a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to function adequately.

After every update our administrators will make sure that all internet sites and offline apps you have on the server are working properly.
