In shared hosting servers all the resources on the server is shared among different accounts hosted on the server. The server might be owned by you or belongs to any hosting provider.

When considering a dedicated, the dedicated server is a server purchased by you and hosted your own stuff, the sole proprietary ship and authorization of the server will be your's. No one can host anything on the server without your permission.

In the case of security, a dedicated server would be more secure compared to shared hosting server, the number of targeted attacks towards dedicated server will be less compared to the accounts/domains hosted on a shared hosting server.

And the possibilities of potential vulnerabilities appears in different hosting accounts on shared server will be high compared to the account hosted in a dedicated server. Any hack attempts on a single account on shared server might possibly affect all other accounts.

You can implement specific security measure that you required, for your application hosted on your dedicated server, but the security implementation/server hardening will be done for generic vulnerabilities/threats.
