Put simply there are 3 types of web hosting......
Shared Web Hosting
Like an office block. There's one big building (a server) where multiple offices (websites) . You have all the resources you need, but you pay less sharing them with others.
Virtual Private Server (VPS)
VPS is more like a small row of units. You will have upgraded resources AND you’ll be sharing them with much fewer people, gaining more power, flexibility and control, but it also costs a little more.
This is exactly what it sounds like – a single virtual machine that’s dedicated to you . It’s the most costly option, but only high-traffic, resource-intensive websites really need it.
