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 apps directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for several reasons. A more modern Operating system version could have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the websites and web apps that you install. Your server will also be more secure because updates typically include security patches that deal with small issues which 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, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
