If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version may have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web apps that you install. Your server shall also be more safe as updates often include security patches which fix small issues which may allow unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their 100 % capabilities.
