Each virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and functions separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that might have a wide range of advantages for your sites. The most essential reason to use the most recent version is that patches are frequently released to deal with security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved functionality of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could immediately impact the efficiency of your sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Os so as to function effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always a wise idea.
