Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and functions separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is usually neglected, but doing that could have quite a lot of benefits for your websites. The most important reason to use the newest version is that patches are typically released to fix security holes within the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to take advantage of these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could directly impact the functionality of your internet sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Os to be able to function properly, consequently keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
