If you get a hosting server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Os and you can later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for a number of reasons. A more modern OS version may have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the websites and web applications that you install. Your server shall also be more secure as updates often include security patches that take care of small issues that may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
