Each virtual or dedicated hosting machine has its own Os and works independently from the hosting servers of other clients. Updating the OS is frequently neglected, but doing that could have a wide range of benefits for your sites. The most essential reason to use the newest version is that patches are frequently released to deal with security holes within the Os code, so if you don't install the updates, you risk people with malicious intentions to take advantage of these holes and to get access to your content. OS updates are also released for improved efficiency of the system as a whole and for better compatibility with the hardware on the market, which could immediately influence the functionality of your websites. If the functionality and the security of your scripts is the reason to update them, you might also find out that their newest versions require an updated Operating System in order to work properly, therefore keeping the OS up-to-date is always a good idea.
