Every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and functions separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the Operating system is often neglected, but doing that may have a wide range of benefits for your internet sites. The most essential reason to employ the latest version is that patches are usually released to fix security holes within the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with destructive intentions to take advantage of these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for improved efficiency of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can directly affect the efficiency of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also know that their latest versions require an updated Operating System to be able to work effectively, thus keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
