If you get a server of your own, it will work independently, so it will have its own Os and you'll be able to later install server side programs directly or script-driven internet sites through a hosting Control Panel. Even though keeping the Operating System updated is not always considered fundamental, it can be a really important task for a number of reasons. A newer OS version might have better support for specific hardware, so you could get better performance for the internet sites and web apps you install. Your server will also be more secure since updates often include security patches that take care of small issues that may enable unauthorized individuals to access your content. Last, but not least, more recent script versions, which are also released for both increased security and for additional features, may need a later version of the Operating System in order to work properly and with their 100 % capabilities.
