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 applications directly or script-driven websites via a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A more modern OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web applications that you install. Your server shall also be more protected as updates typically include security patches that resolve small problems that may allow unauthorized individuals 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 need a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
