Dedicated Hosting for Website

I have been using shared hosting for my website since many years. The problem with this is slow server response.

For better speed, I am planning to move to to dedicated hosting server.

But I think the price for dedicated hosting is high, because my number of visitors are low being a local business (monthly less than 2000 visitors and 700 MB bandwidth) .

I am also looking for other option e.g. AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. I can see they also offer a small tier which is forever free which I believe is more than sufficient for my small website.

I believe these being bigger players offer higher optimized services. And they are scalable if my needs increase.

If you are a techie: Please suggest which one of these three will be good for me

You could have managed to get good speeds on shared hosting too.. Some of the hosting providers give SSD disk + CDN is a must… I’ve personally used cloudflare for ssl… Overall the speed for me was smooth… Just the image loading times were time consuming.. But then I optimized those images too…
Now to your question, AWS is good for overall requirements of yours
P.S. I did it on my blog 2years back

I too use cloudflare for ssl and cdn

And other plugins to async/defer Java script. Cache static resources e.g css and js. To deliver images through cdn i use jetpack plugin as cloudlare free cdn tier provide css, html and js suport.

Yet when server need to fetch something from hosting server(bigrock), response time is high. Most of this is wait time

Because of this, initial response time is low. This give bad user experience
