Not really sure what you are asking here, you say you want to match the hosting specs you have from Godaddy but there is no way to know what that speed is based on what you provided. 4 virtual CPU cores, how fast are they?

Your system is probably easily as fast as what you are getting from Godaddy. All you need to do is to add more storage, which is simply buy enough large disk to reach the storage you need.

Self hosting at home brings serious security implications, vs what GoDaddy provides.

"( Preferable that this Specifications can be used as NAS System too ). "
This adds yet another level of "security problem". Having your local personal storage on the same box as a webserver...I would not do.

Ok, This is what i'm thinking now let me focus on just the hardware itself not the security on other things so i would like to use DUAL CPU Processor which include One Samsung 970 PRO SSD 1TB - M.2 NVMe and this will required to change both Motherboard & CPU Also it is required New CPU Cooler and Last thing Is this Case i have is good to add HDD or SSD or need a replacment. As for more Storage Which HDD type will provide the best performance ?

I'm not expert on those things but what i can say is a basic system can fit 6TB bandwidth with average of 50k active users as for software since i will be using CentOS 7 i will ne to install cPanel on it which allow me to use MySQL database and it will be very good if i would be able to use technology like Node.js, Memcached, Nginx, Redis & Hadoop.

OK, yes.
An averagly good PC can probably handle that.

1 drive for the OS and possibly db engine. Probably an SSD.
Other HDD's for however much drive space you need.


But hosting a webserver with "50k active users " is much more than just the specific box of parts.

Yes, really understand that i may need something like Gigabyte DO60-MR0 & Gigabyte R282-Z93 so just will do a basic things which take advantage for those things in order to upgrade my pc. Could provide me a specification base on those things we talk about ? Also you said i need SSD is Samsung 970 PRO SSD 1TB - M.2 NVMe will proper choice and which type of HDD should i pick WD Black, Purple, Red or Gold ?

Make a count that i want to use Dual CPU motherboard which one should i buy ? Also make a count for future to upgrade RAM for higher speed.

I recommend you call Dell, give them your requirements, and see what they suggest.
Then, call HP and do the same.

My actual suggestion is to leave the hosting to GoDaddy, but that is apparently off the table.
