Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Operating System and works independently from the servers of other clients. Updating the Operating system is often ignored, but doing that might have a wide range of benefits for your sites. The most essential reason to use the latest version is that patches are typically released to deal with security holes in the Operating System code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to exploit these holes and to access your content. OS updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system as a whole and for far better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which can directly affect the functionality of your internet sites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also find out that their most up-to-date versions require an updated Operating System so as to function properly, therefore keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.

After every update our admins will make sure that all websites and offline apps you have on the hosting machine are functioning properly.
