If your site is having some decent traffic, you should move ahead of shared hosting and should think either of VPS or dedicated server. But if you can’t afford dedicated server so early, VPS is for you.
In fact, VPS is the combination of shared hosting and dedicated server. Here you will have more control over your server and you can customize, the way you want. Needless to say, security will get increased for sure.
But usually the too high price of VPS and dedicated servers, people don’t try to get into it and compromise with the shared hosting.
