If you get a server of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Os and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Cp. Though keeping the Os updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a very 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 applications which you install. Your server will also be more safe since updates usually include security patches that deal with small issues which may permit unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, might require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their full capabilities.
