But for your storage a NAS (low CPU, low energy consumption, much disk space) is sufficient. For a server serving your website you might need more. I don’t want to talk you out of this, I just want to make sure that you are aware: hosting this server yourself is not costless :)

What others had to say…

Right now I'm hosting HomeAssistant on a NUC which takes 15 W. I'm guessing that if I want to serve my website, mastodon, pixelfed, peertube and perhaps other things in the future I'd want something which also runs with a mobile CPU like the NUC, just newer and faster and in a different case so I can build in hard drives, etc. inside of it. But yes, I'll need to calculate the costs for all of that.
