If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you could later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, 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 sites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more secure because updates typically include security patches that take care of small problems which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer 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 correctly and with their 100 % capabilities.
