If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Cp. While keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a rather important task for a number of reasons. A newer OS version may have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the websites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates typically include security patches that take care of small problems that may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
