Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and works independently from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently neglected, but doing that may have quite a lot of benefits for your websites. The most important reason to employ the newest version is that patches are usually released to fix security holes within the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people 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 could directly affect the functionality of your internet sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also discover that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Operating System to be able to work properly, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a good idea.
