    If you have enough ram, then go for raid as it will improve I/O, you should only add more ram when server runs out of ram. There is really no benefit of having unused ram for server performance.

    It all goes down into how much costumers you are planning to have in your hosting and how much they are using, and how much you are planning to use.

    CPUs nowdays are pretty efficient and you shouldn't have a problem finding a good CPU for shared hosting, same goes for RAM you shouldn't have a problem with RAM either its something you add when you need.

    You can do the same with hard drives but they will most likely maxout way before RAM or CPU does.

    I would recommend 4 Hard Drives in RAID 10.

    You should start with 8GB and when you see that you need more RAM upgrade. I don't think that starting with 16GB of RAM is necessary.

    What RAID massive do you have now? Raid 10 is a bomb, because it provides high availability by combining features of RAID 0 and RAID 1.

    off course RAM is important parameter and if you have 8 GB, you can try to add another 4 to test your performance
