Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and functions independently from the hosting servers of other clients. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that may have quite a lot of benefits for your websites. The most significant reason to employ the most up-to-date version is that patches are typically released to deal with security holes within the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with destructive intentions to use these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved efficiency of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly influence the functionality of your sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also know that their most recent versions require an updated Operating System to be able to work effectively, thus keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
