Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and operates separately from the hosting servers of other clients. Updating the Operating system is often ignored, but doing that may have lots of advantages for your sites. The most essential reason to employ the most recent version is that patches are usually released to repair security holes inside the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with harmful intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system in general and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can instantly affect the performance of your websites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also find out that their latest versions require an updated Operating System so as to function properly, so keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.
