Shared Web Hosting...(Several hundred other clients on the same server...) Nothing....
Obviously, some provide a higher level of customer support. There are thousands of cPanel webhosts that literally provide the same exact product with a different face on it. You see some more than others because some have deeper pockets, better affiliate payouts, etc.
Dedicated Servers (Just you and your site/s on 1 machine)
Significantly more secure. You'll find more differences here.
