Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and functions independently from the servers of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that may have a wide range of advantages for your sites. The most essential reason to use the newest version is that patches are frequently released to repair security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to exploit these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for improved efficiency of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could immediately affect the functionality of your sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also find out that their newest versions require an updated Os so as to operate properly, so keeping the OS up-to-date is always wise.
