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 apps directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a rather important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version may have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more safe since updates often include security patches that resolve small issues that may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
