Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and works independently from the servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually ignored, but doing that may have lots of benefits for your sites. The most important reason to use the latest version is that patches are usually released to repair security holes within the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for enhanced efficiency of the system as a whole and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can immediately influence the efficiency of your sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also know that their most recent versions require an updated Os in order to operate properly, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a wise idea.
