If you get a server of your own, it will work independently, so it'll have its own Os and you could later install server side programs directly or script-driven websites through a hosting Control Panel. Although keeping the Os updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a quite important task for a number 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 apps you install. Your server shall also be more secure since updates normally include security patches which resolve small issues which may permit 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, might require a later version of the Os in order to work correctly and with their 100 % capabilities.
