Every virtual or dedicated hosting server has its own Operating System and works independently from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the Operating system is usually ignored, but doing that might have a wide range of benefits for your sites. The most important reason to use the newest version is that patches are usually released to deal with security holes within the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk individuals with harmful intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. Operating system updates are also released for much better functionality of the system as a whole and for much better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could instantly impact the functionality of your 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 Operating System to be able to work properly, so keeping the OS up-to-date is always recommended.
