If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A newer OS version may have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web apps you install. Your server shall also be more protected as updates normally include security patches which deal with small problems which may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
