If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Os and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version could have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more safe as updates often include security patches which fix small issues which may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern 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.
