If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you can later install server side applications directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Control Panel. Though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a very important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the websites and web applications you install. Your server will also be more protected since updates normally include security patches that take care of small problems that may enable unauthorized individuals 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 100 % capabilities.
