They have since removed OS X Server from the downloads lists. Just an FYI. – user142934 Aug 25 '15 at 12:31
@m3g4hur7z It is still available, as per Alexandru Drancas answer, in the OSX Dev Center. – Lizzan Nov 15 '15 at 19:16

9 To Mac states this clearly:

To download OS X Server, developers should access the iOS or Mac developer portal to retrieve an App Store redemption code.

  1. If you have iOS development program go to:
  2. Scroll down
  3. Click Get download code
  4. Redeem the code
  5. Download your free version of OS X Server 3.0.3

This text is next to the button:

OS X Server 3.0.3 Includes Xcode Server to enable continuous integration. Works with Xcode 5 to configure bots that automatically build and test your apps. Requires OS X Mavericks.

For some reason I don't get it on the iOS website but you can get it on the OS X OSX Dev Center and down you have the code.
