If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Os and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Cp. While keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a really important task for a number of reasons. A newer Operating system version could have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web applications you install. Your server will also be more secure because updates normally include security patches that take care of small issues which may enable unauthorized individuals 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 Operating System in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
