Mid-priced hosting options?

I prefer shared hosting but do any hosts offer some type of elite
shared hosting; where you can pay more to get put on a less crowded
server and get higher prioroty for support?

Or what about virtual private server? I mostly use cpanel and ssh ,
however , i dont have any experience doing things as root. Would that
work for me? my budget is around $25/ month.

A VPS will often get you a less crowded experience, yes. As for
support priority, that's a contentious issue. Some argue that a
customer is a customer, whether large or small.

From my own experiences over many years running a serious site (rather
than a 10 views-a-day hobby) is to recommend the host we use:


I am assured there are other quality hosting companies, but I haven't
first-hand experience of them to be able to recommend them.

You could get a VPS for that price, but I'd recommend against it.

Not only do you have root authority, you also have root responsibility.
  It means you have to set up everything for your server.  Want telnet
access?  You have to set it up.  Want SSH access?  You need to set that
up, also - and it's a bit harder.  Email?  Pick your MTA and set it up.

You get the idea.  It's a lot more work, and really only reasonable if
you need to (or at least want to) control everything yourself.
