Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and functions independently from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that might have lots of advantages for your internet sites. The most important reason to use the newest version is that patches are usually released to deal with security holes in the Os 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 improved functionality of the system as a whole and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could immediately affect the efficiency of your websites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their newest versions require an updated Os in order to work effectively, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
