Each virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and functions independently from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the Operating system is usually neglected, but doing that could have lots of advantages for your 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 people with harmful intentions to use these holes and to access your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced efficiency of the system overall and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can immediately influence 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 to be able to work effectively, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
