Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and works separately from the servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is often neglected, but doing that may have a wide range of advantages for your internet sites. The most important reason to employ the most up-to-date version is that patches are usually released to fix security holes in the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better functionality of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly impact the performance of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also find out that their most recent versions require an updated Os in order to work effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
