If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Os and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A newer Operating system version could have better support for certain hardware, so you may get better performance for the websites and web applications you install. Your server shall also be more protected because updates usually include security patches that take care of small issues which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
