If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you can later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a quite important task for a number of reasons. A more modern OS version may have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the internet sites and web apps you install. Your server shall also be more safe since updates often include security patches that resolve small problems that may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
