Each and every virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and operates independently from the servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually neglected, but doing that could have a wide range of benefits for your websites. The most significant reason to employ the newest version is that patches are frequently released to fix security holes within the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved functionality of the system as a whole and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could immediately impact the efficiency of your sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their latest versions require an updated Os in order to work properly, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always a wise idea.
