If you get a hosting machine of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you can later install server side apps directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a quite important task for a variety of reasons. A newer OS version could have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the internet sites and web applications which you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates usually include security patches which fix small issues that may allow unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, current 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 properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
