If you get a server of your own, it will run independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Cp. While keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered a necessity, it can be a quite important task for a number of reasons. A more modern OS version could have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the websites and web apps which you install. Your server will also be more safe as updates often include security patches that resolve small issues that may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more modern script versions, which are also released for both boosted security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
