Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and works separately from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is usually neglected, but doing that may have quite a lot of benefits for your sites. The most important reason to employ the latest version is that patches are typically released to deal with security holes in the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with harmful intentions to exploit these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could directly impact the performance of your sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you could also find out that their latest versions require an updated Os so as to function effectively, consequently keeping the OS up-to-date is always a wise idea.
