Dedicated servers are more expensive because you pay for hosting your site on a separate server, thus your site will have a maximum data transfer rate to the customers. For example the same SwissHosters, they offer their clients a dedicated server for every taste, in addition all their servers are protected from DDoS attacks.

I have a dedicated server and my hosting costs less than most shared hosting plans. You just have to shop around.

Dedicated servers can be managed or unmanaged. For the managed ones, the hosts cover the software installation needed for the website to operate and it comes with a higher price. Also they give better support for them. The unmanaged on the other hand are cheaper and demand more knowledge from the webmasters, all the software are picked, installed and configured by the webmaster himself so they could be mis-configured if he doesn't have enough experience.
Also webmasters that own a lot of websites tend to put them all on a one server so that they can be easily managed or moved.
Another solution for intermediate/big websites is the VPS.VPSs is basically dedicated servers that are shared with a limited number of websites (the price of the dedicated is split by the number of the websites).They can also be managed or unmanaged.
For more detailed information about servers refer to OpenWebsiteTutorials.
I was on shared hosting for about 2 years, and that is fine for a basic site like a blog or something. But when I started getting into building complex web apps, I switched to dedicated hosting at Rackspace. This gives me full root access to my server to hack, modify, and program it as I please. I can change settings in my server configuration, add/remove packages I need/don't need, and so forth. A shared hosting plan won't let you do any of this.
Your decision mostly depends on the complexity of the website. For something based on WordPress or any other common CMS, shared hosting will be fine. If you need a lot of backend scripting and complicated programming, go with a dedicated server
The more computing resources one website or app needs the more higher class hosting solutions it has to use. Dedicated means that all the resource of the physical server or virtual machine (when it is advertised ad "Virtual Dedicated Server") are allocated to one instance.

In Dedicated Server you can use all of the dedicated resources as you are the only account holder on that server. Dedicated server Users/Admin have control over the server and can make modifications to the software according to their requirements since no other accounts are affected.

As others have said, with a dedicated server you have dedicated resources which is very important if you are running something resource intensive. You don't have to worry about your neighbors using up CPU/RAM like on a VPS.
