If you get a hosting server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you could later install server side programs directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Cp. While keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a quite important task for a variety of reasons. A newer Operating system version might have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web applications you install. Your server shall also be more protected because updates typically include security patches which take care of small problems that may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
