    I've had a look at that server also (some days ago), and yes it will work at home, but it will make a lot of noise.
    So if you use it at home, make sure you put is somewhere far away from you!

    Thanks for the quick response.
    A few more questions if I may.

    Is this a good server to start with?
    And is the price a normal one?

    I have searched the Internet a wile but I can't get a real sence of it.
    I mean I am totally new in the server specs. and don't know a lot of the server prices.

    To be honest, I wouldn't buy a server to move it to a data center. Renting a server is not much more expensive than paying co-location, and if you have a hardware failure with a rented server, your provider usually replaces it for free, while with an owned server, you have to pay the new hardware yourself.

    You can get cheap rented servers here:

    And for testing at home, you can set up a virtual machine with VMware Server or VirtualBox.
