If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for a number of reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for certain hardware, so you may get better performance for the sites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates typically include security patches that deal with small issues which may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
