If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Os and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a rather important task for several reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the websites and web applications you install. Your server will also be more safe since updates usually include security patches which take care of small problems which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
