Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and works independently from the servers of other clients. Updating the OS is usually overlooked, but doing that could have a wide range of advantages for your websites. The most essential reason to use the newest version is that patches are frequently released to repair security holes in the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to take advantage of these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for improved performance of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could immediately affect the performance of your internet sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also know that their newest versions require an updated Os so as to work properly, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
