Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and functions separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is usually neglected, but doing that might have a wide range of advantages for your websites. The most essential reason to use the newest version is that patches are typically released to fix security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to use these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better performance of the system as a whole and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could instantly influence the efficiency of your internet sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their most recent versions require an updated Operating System so as to operate effectively, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a good idea.
