If you get a hosting server of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered fundamental, 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 could get better performance for the internet sites and web applications which you install. Your server will also be more safe as updates often include security patches that resolve small issues which may allow unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
