Running your own VPS is certainly the best solution. I personally love
Linode, which I don't find too expensive. By using a VPS, I get full
root access to any Linux distribution of my choice (I prefer Debian),
and I get to secure the system myself. I won't have to depend on
someone to update software, setup security policies, etc. Since I have
root access, I have the ability to install or program software. We
were able to program, administrate, and run Monopoly (and soon to to
be Uno), all through a VPS, which wouldn't be possible on a shared
host like BlueHost.
I suppose a VPS wouldn't be a good solution for someone who is new to
Linux, but someone could always learn. It is not the best idea to be
dependent on the shared hosting company to secure the server for you.
