If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a really important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern OS version could have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the internet sites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more safe because updates typically include security patches which take care of small issues which may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
