If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern OS version might have better support for certain hardware, so you may get better performance for the sites and web applications that you install. Your server shall also be more protected as updates often include security patches that take care of small issues that may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
