Each virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and works separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the OS is usually neglected, but doing that might have quite a lot of advantages for your websites. The most important reason to use the newest version is that patches are usually released to deal with security holes in the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to take advantage of these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system overall and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can instantly influence the efficiency of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also find out that their most recent versions require an updated Os so as to work properly, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always a wise idea.
