If you get a hosting server of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Os and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Os updated isn't always considered fundamental, it can be a quite important task for several reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web apps you install. Your server shall also be more safe because updates usually include security patches that resolve small issues which may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their full capabilities.
