Sure, there are hundreds of hosting solutions. Furthermore there are extreme disparities in price, hardware and network connections. It would be also good to know what your maximum budget is and where you would like it to be hosted (German, France, US, bulletproof :trollface:).
Compared to a VPS which is oversold in most cases it is surely faster and there should not be any lag on a dedicated server.
Please, tell me your maximum budget first, then I will find you an option (from my personal experience).
