Each and every virtual or dedicated server has its own Operating System and functions separately from the servers of other clients. Updating the Operating system is usually neglected, but doing that could have quite a lot of benefits for your sites. The most significant reason to employ the most recent version is that patches are typically released to repair security holes inside the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system in general and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can immediately impact the efficiency of your websites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you may also discover that their most recent versions require an updated Os so as to operate effectively, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always a wise idea.
