If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Os and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a quite important task for a number of reasons. A newer OS version may have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web applications that you install. Your server shall also be more safe as updates usually include security patches that deal with small problems that may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
