Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and operates independently from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the Operating system is often ignored, but doing that may have quite a lot of advantages for your internet sites. The most significant reason to use the newest version is that patches are frequently released to fix security holes within the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to use these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for much better functionality of the system as a whole and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can instantly impact the functionality of your sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also know that their newest versions require an updated Operating System in order to work properly, so keeping the OS up-to-date is always recommended.
