If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Os and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a really important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version could have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the sites and web applications you install. Your server shall also be more secure because updates typically include security patches which take care of small problems which may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
