A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Os and always keeping the latter up-to-date is a crucial, though underestimated task. Not only can an update boost the general performance of your internet sites, but it will also save you a lot of issues in the future. An update may be released for a variety of reasons, the most common being to fix recently found security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and modify the content that you have on the hosting machine. You may also see an improved performance of your web applications since updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it works on so that you can get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could also require a later Operating system version that will have the necessary software dependencies and will enable them to operate adequately.
