If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Os and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Os updated is not always considered a necessity, it can be a quite important task for several reasons. A newer OS version may have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the websites and web apps which you install. Your server shall also be more protected since updates usually include security patches that resolve small problems which may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
