    Dedicated hosting is always best as long as you can afford it. Shared hosting are the accounts hosted on a dedicated server and the number can range from 300-500 domains on one server. This increases the risk of server load and downtime and is not a reliable hosting for ecommerce/business and important websites.

    Best is dedicated web hosting but it is very costly. Try VPS.

    It is depends on your requirement. If you are beginner and would like to develop the single site then I would suggest go with shared hosting service. It's good for you to learn the things and once you will get familiar with it then switch to dedicated server.

    Dedicated server is appropriate for you when you will get expert in managing your own server. On it, you can host the multiple websites too.

    Hope this answer will help you.

    Greetings,
    Here is the difference

    Shared Hosting
    • Multiple customers on single hardware
    • Bandwidth, hardware, Software and all the peripherals are shared by the multiple customers
    • Cheaper and affordable
    • Security can be a concern
    Dedicated Hosting
    • Dedicated Resources
    • Bandwidth, hardware, Software and all the peripherals are dedicated to only one customer
    • Expensive
    • Safe and Secure

    If you have a medium sized business, choosing between a shared and dedicated web hosting plan can be a big challenge. Things can become confusing because you will have to decide between your current and future need.
    The hosting type that you choose will depend solely on your needs, budget, server and website needs, and the amount control that you desire.

    dedicated hosting is always going to provide better service, but you really have to establish your needs and what you can realistically afford. dedicated hosting can be expensive and if you're just starting out it's probably not advisable. if you can find a provider that will allow you to switch up, you might want to start with shared and change up later, though this might cause a headache later
