Got 6 websites between 7 and 15gb each and want to host them on my own server. One of the sites is a blog and the other 5 are drop shipping sites with blogs, each of them. The overall traffic across all these websites is 500-550k monthly with perspective to hit 1m next year.

My internet connection is optical with cables underground (99.92% uptime until now, starting from February 2016) with speed 1000mbps DL and 500mbps upload. Will use 4G for backup, just in case.

I have no electricity issues but have one old UPS for my gaming PC and I will use it for this server, just in case -it will provide 45-60min uptime without electricity.

Will use 3TB USB 3 external HDD for automatic daily backups + Cloud / Dropbox and will save up to 10 backups.

At the moment I am using cloud service from SiteGround and I feel the need of a dedicated server, however, the prices there start at 170 Euro/month (without the taxes).

Please give me suggestions, improvements, tips.

Case: Must have dust filters + to be small. I have 3 TT cases and I am more than pleased with them that's why I find this option good for me.

RAM: I prefer ECC for a server (not that there is a practical difference) but the site says that this MB isn't compatible with ECC ram, but MSI official websites say it supports DDR4 ECC. So? Where is the truth?

CPU: Could go with i5-6400 but XEON performs way better and has 8mb cache.

PSU: Could go with cheaper, but prefer great Tier1 PSU at least gold certified. Other Options maybe? I refer only to tested PSUs at TOMS HARDWARE.

SSD: Any better options here? I am using 2 of this 2nd or 3rd year on my Gaming PC and I have yet to see any issues and it runs 24/7. Maybe I can go with cheaper M.2, however, couldn't find cheap MB that has M.2, have integrated VGA, LGA1151 and supports ECC... Plus I have heard the M.2s are getting kinda hot and aren't as stable as the regular SSDs

Budget ~800$

Ok, this is the complete list of CPUs on FCLGA1151 supporting ECC.

Yes, but what about the MB?

The motherboard looks all right to me, but your choice or RAM seems not to support ECC (neither listed on Corsair's website.

The RAM isnt ECC, I have put non-ECC because PC PartPicker says that there are issues with the motherboard and ECC ram.

I personally wouldn't host anything at home if anybody but your trusted friends know the address or ip. If someone were to ddos you you would be screwed.

I can protect against DDOS

Massive companies like EA, Bethesda, Microsoft or even Steam can't even protect against DDOS.

Because they are massive. Huge targets are easy to hit.
