If you get a hosting server of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A newer Operating system version might have better support for specific hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps which you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates typically include security patches that fix small issues which may enable 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 require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
