If you get a server of your own, it will run independently, so it'll have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side applications directly or script-driven internet sites via a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a quite important task for a variety of reasons. A more modern Operating system version may have better support for specific hardware, so you may get better performance for the internet sites and web applications that you install. Your server will also be more secure since updates usually include security patches that fix small issues that may allow unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, current script versions, which are also released for both improved security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Os in order to work properly and with their full capabilities.
