Each virtual or dedicated server has its own Os and functions separately from the hosting machines of other clients. Updating the OS is usually ignored, but doing that may have quite a lot of benefits for your internet sites. The most significant reason to use the newest version is that patches are typically released to repair security holes in the Os code, so if you do not install the updates, you risk people with harmful intentions to take advantage of these holes and to gain access to your content. OS updates are also released for much better efficiency of the system as a whole and for much better compatibility with the hardware available on the market, which could instantly affect the functionality of your websites. If the performance and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also discover that their latest versions require an updated Operating System in order to work properly, consequently keeping the Operating system up-to-date is always recommended.
