If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a rather important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web applications which you install. Your server shall also be more secure as updates typically include security patches which fix small problems which may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
