Every virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and works independently from the hosting servers of other customers. Updating the OS is frequently ignored, but doing that could have a wide range of advantages for your sites. The most important reason to use the most recent version is that patches are usually released to deal with security holes inside the Operating System code, so if you don't 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 efficiency of the system in general and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which can directly affect the performance of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their newest versions require an updated Os in order to work properly, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always a wise idea.
