A virtual or a dedicated hosting server is a standalone machine, which has its own Operating System and maintaining the latter up-to-date is an important, though underrated task. Not simply can an update boost the performance of your internet sites, but it will also save you a great deal of problems in the future. An update could be released for a lot of reasons, the most prevalent being to fix recently found security holes, which may permit third-party individuals to access and change the content which you have on the server. You may also see an improved performance of your web apps because updates may also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on so as to get the most out of the hardware. Also, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could need a later Operating system version that will have the required software dependencies and will allow them to function adequately.
