Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Os and operates separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is usually neglected, but doing that might have quite a lot of benefits for your websites. The most important reason to employ the newest version is that patches are frequently released to repair security holes inside the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved functionality of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can directly impact the functionality of your websites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also know that their most recent versions require an updated Operating System in order to operate effectively, consequently keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
