I think it's better to use a dedicated server, but if this option seems rather expensive to you, try with a VPS with higher specifications.

For any choice that you will make, look for a provider with anti-DDoS protection. Gaming websites/servers is probably one of the most involved type of usage for receiving DDoS type attacks. Also, probably you will be oriented into some specific region, so look for a provider with a DC in the specific region to optimize the speed between your users and the datacenter.

It depends how much resources are required. For a gaming website, the number of visitors would substantially increases then you need more resources. So Dedicated server will be a better option. For upgrade or for any changes need to be done dedicated server will be faster than other.

This depends on how many players there will be and the games themselves, as that factors into resources that you'll be consuming. If you're talking about a neighborhood circle, a VPS might work, but generally a dedicated server is recommended. I absolutely recommend having DDoS protection of some sort.

I believe he is asking about just a gaming website so all the chatter about VPS and dedicated is not necessary. A simple shared hosting account will suffice just as long as your not actually running any games on that hosting. Most of the time customers over host their websites expecting a huge flow of traffic anticipating the best website ever. But in reality driving traffic to a website is quite difficult and time consuming as well as expensive and takes a lot of time.
Most likely there is a budget issue since this is a gaming website, so start with a shared hosting account then work you way up from there. If you community grows then move to a small VPS.

Why you need a dedicated server? because if you allow multi players on your game site, it will be high load sometimes and you can not run on a shared hosting or a small VPS with low configurations..

First It depends how much resources are required. For a gaming website like number of websites.
Second in my opinion you can try bluehost.

What most gamers need is great latency and DDoS protection. You'll lose players rather rapidly if they experience lag or downtimes.

I think should try a dedicated server from any reputed web hosting company.

most of clients come with this issue. we always suggest them of cloud hosting. for your gaming website, cloud hosting is the suitable options to get stability to your gaming site and try once cloud hosting.
Cloud hosting is the future of hosting solution.
