Every virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and works independently from the hosting servers of other clients. Updating the OS is often overlooked, but doing that could have a wide range of advantages for your websites. The most important reason to employ the newest version is that patches are typically released to repair security holes in the Operating System code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk individuals with destructive intentions to exploit these holes and to access your content. Operating system updates are also released for enhanced performance of the system in general and for far better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can instantly influence the functionality of your internet sites. If the efficiency and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Os in order to work properly, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always a wise idea.
