If you get a hosting server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a rather important task for several reasons. A newer OS version may have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web applications you install. Your server shall also be more safe because updates typically include security patches that take care of small problems that may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, newer script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
