Dedicated hosting might be an upgrade from shared hosting, VPS hosting, and public cloud hosting. At this point, you could upgrade your security by moving to VPS hosting or a public cloud option, but you can also move towards a dedicated hosting solution. Even if they offer unmetered or unlimited bandwidth, there can be fine print on the details of this bandwidth. You might need to get a faster loading experience and more bandwidth to handle increases in traffic, and switching to a dedicated hosting plan can give you more CPU cores and better handling of traffic. There is a limit to the amount of files you can store with your website host. If your site begins to grow and expand, you may need more room on the server to handle that content. In this case, you may need to scale up beyond what your current hosting plan offers. You should consider increasing the plan that you currently have before you switch to dedicated hosting. Also remember that growth will not always continue at a steady rate.
