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 via a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web applications which you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates normally include security patches that deal with small issues that may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their 100 % capabilities.
