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 websites. The most significant reason to use the most up-to-date version is that patches are typically released to fix security holes in the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to exploit these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly affect the efficiency of your internet sites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also discover that their most recent versions require an updated Os to be able to function effectively, consequently keeping the OS up-to-date is always a wise idea.
