Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Os and works separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is frequently overlooked, but doing that could have quite a lot of advantages for your websites. The most significant reason to use the newest version is that patches are frequently released to repair security holes within the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can directly impact the functionality of your websites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also know that their newest versions require an updated Operating System so as to function effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
