Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and works separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that might have lots of advantages for your internet sites. The most essential reason to use the most recent version is that patches are typically released to fix security holes inside the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to use these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better performance of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can immediately impact the performance of your websites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also discover that their most recent versions require an updated Operating System so as to operate effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always recommended.
