If you get a server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Operating System and you can later install server side programs directly or script-driven sites via a hosting Cp. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a very important task for several reasons. A more modern Operating system version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the sites and web applications which you install. Your server shall also be more secure because updates normally include security patches which take care of small issues which may enable unauthorized people to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both enhanced security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work correctly and with their 100 % capabilities.
