If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Os and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Os updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a rather important task for a number of reasons. A newer Operating system version might have better support for certain hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web apps which you install. Your server will also be more safe as updates typically include security patches that take care of 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, might require a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
