Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and operates separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is often neglected, but doing that could have quite a lot of advantages for your internet sites. The most important reason to use the newest version is that patches are typically released to repair security holes in the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to take advantage of these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved efficiency of the system overall and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could immediately influence the efficiency of your internet sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also discover that their latest versions require an updated Os to be able to work effectively, so keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always wise.
