Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and functions independently from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually neglected, but doing that might have a wide range of benefits for your internet sites. The most essential reason to employ the latest version is that patches are frequently released to fix security holes inside the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to use these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved performance of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could immediately affect the functionality of your sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also discover that their most recent versions require an updated Operating System to be able to operate properly, consequently keeping the OS up-to-date is always wise.
