Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and works separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that may have a wide range of benefits for your websites. The most important reason to employ the latest version is that patches are usually released to deal with security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to take advantage of these holes and to access your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved performance of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could immediately influence the performance of your sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also know that their latest versions require an updated Os so as to function effectively, consequently keeping the OS up-to-date is always wise.
