Each virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and functions independently from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that could have lots of advantages for your internet sites. The most significant reason to use the most up-to-date version is that patches are typically released to repair security holes inside the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with destructive intentions to use these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved functionality 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 sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also know that their most recent versions require an updated Os so as to work properly, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.
