Not only can an update boost the overall performance of your websites, but it could also save you a lot of troubles later on. An update may be released for a variety of reasons, the most widespread being to fix recently found security holes, which may allow third-party individuals to access and change the content that you have on the hosting machine. You may also see an improved overall performance of your web applications since updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Operating System and the configuration it functions on in order to get the most out of the hardware. Moreover, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could need a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to work properly.
