If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the sites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more secure since updates usually include security patches which deal with small issues that may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
