Each virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and operates independently from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that could have lots of advantages for your internet sites. The most significant reason to use the most up-to-date version is that patches are usually released to repair security holes in the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with destructive intentions to use these holes and to access your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could directly influence the performance of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also find out that their most recent versions require an updated Os to be able to work effectively, so keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a good idea.
