If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Os updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version may have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web applications which you install. Your server shall also be more safe since updates typically include security patches which take care of small issues that may allow unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
