Does VPS require certain level tech skill to manage like security issue etc?
I can setup the site on my own though using guide on google or youtube
But after that I would not know how to fix if something error or issue happened.
I heard people say they would end up with vps if website growing big.
Is shared hosting only working with small sites?
Can some one give a hint?

If you want to focus on content, without bothering about technical things, just use shared hosting. If someday, you need more powerful hosting, you can choose managed VPS. VPS with support from the vendor.

There are managed vps but they're usually more expensive. If you're just starting out go with a shared hosting, then when or if your website grows bigger do the upgrade.

Managing VPS is not that difficult now a days, there are many cloud hosted panels and self hosted panels too, which makes the job much easier,
but if you are startup go with shared hosting and upgrade eventually

Generally speaking, you can opt for VPS with preinstalled control panel such as Webuzo / cPanel which makes things easy in terms of "administration".

I would always recommend going with VPS over Shared due to the resource isolation.

There's only one way to find out. Try and see.

A VPS is just like a dedicated server for all practical purposes, only difference is bare metal hardware vs. virtual. So if you're not familiar with managing a server, don't go for VPS.

VPS gives you more power and freedom, shared hosting usually have terms of services with more strict rules to be followed as you are along with many other sites in the same server, if your site starts to require more resources the shared hosting company will force you to upgrade or move
