If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side apps directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a really important task for a variety of reasons. A newer OS version may have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web applications which you install. Your server shall also be more protected because updates typically include security patches that deal with small problems that may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may require a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
