Each and every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and operates separately from the hosting machines of other customers. Updating the Operating system is frequently overlooked, but doing that might have lots of advantages for your sites. The most significant reason to use the latest version is that patches are frequently 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 use these holes and to get access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for improved performance of the system as a whole and for better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could immediately impact 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 most up-to-date versions require an updated Operating System to be able to function properly, so keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
