If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for a number of reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for certain hardware, so you may get better performance for the sites and web applications you install. Your server shall also be more secure since updates normally include security patches that fix small issues which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
