can airport extreme be a server running Mac OS Server

I want to build a website offline so I can teach myself before going online.
I have a Mac Pro late 2013. I know my server will get large in size so an external drive is preferable.

    What do you mean "can AirPort Extreme be a server"? The airport extreme itself can not be a server. Its a router. But the Mac Pro 2013 you have can be a server and you would connect that directly to the AirPort Extreme and OS X server will configure the AirPort Extreme automatically for whatever services you want on the server.
