If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Os and you could later install server side applications directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Os updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very 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 internet sites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more secure as updates usually include security patches that deal with small problems that may permit unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
