    Nginx 1.13.x
    MariaDB 5.5
    that server looks lightly used already though

    besides maybe more disk space

    What is medium traffic in your experience? 10 k visits a day, 100 k visits a day, 1 m visits a day?
    What is your average server load per day?

    For the information available right now.
    It seems like your server is way overkill.
    As @eva2000 has already said, in other words.

    Not only CPU but also memory.
    Tip! Monitor all you can, analyze the data and make the choice that fits the best.
    This can save a lot.
