If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Control Panel. While keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a rather important task for a number of reasons. A more modern OS version could have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web applications which you install. Your server will also be more secure as updates typically include security patches that take care of small issues that may allow unauthorized individuals 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 Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
