Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and functions independently from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that may have a wide range of benefits for your websites. The most essential reason to employ the most recent version is that patches are frequently released to fix security holes within the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to exploit these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved functionality of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can immediately impact the performance of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also discover that their most recent versions require an updated Os to be able to operate effectively, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
