If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A newer Operating system version could have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web applications you install. Your server will also be more secure since updates normally include security patches that take care of small issues which may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
