If you get a server of your own, it will operate independently, so it'll have its own Operating System and you'll be able to later install server side apps directly or script-driven sites through a hosting Cp. Although keeping the Operating System updated isn't always considered an absolute necessity, it can be a quite important task for several reasons. A newer Operating system version may have better support for certain hardware, so you might get better performance for the sites and web applications that 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 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, might require a later version of the Operating System in order to work effectively and with their 100 % capabilities.
