Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and works independently from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that may have quite a lot of benefits for your sites. The most significant reason to use the most up-to-date version is that patches are typically released to fix security holes within the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with harmful intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced efficiency of the system in general and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could directly impact the efficiency of your internet sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also know that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Operating System so as to work properly, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a wise idea.
