Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and works independently from the hosting servers of other clients. Updating the OS is often ignored, but doing that could have lots of benefits for your internet sites. The most important reason to employ the most up-to-date version is that patches are typically released to deal with security holes within the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with malicious intentions to use these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved performance of the system overall and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly influence the functionality 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 recent versions require an updated Os so as to work properly, so keeping the OS up-to-date is always recommended.
