how to scale without going to VPS and ded.server?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth
Hello folks,
I would like to kindly ask your help to solve my problem. My website is a database driven PHP site and is currently on Stable hosting and my package is Basic. The server can handle about 150 simultaneous guests maximum (by GA real time) without slowing down response time. I use CloudFlare.

How could i serve to more visitors without scaling it to dedicated hosting? I’ve tried three different VPSs and not been impressed. Actually, i like semi-dedicated hosting. But 150 guests is not great and i get some complaints from my visitors.

Before i moved to Stablehosting, i was in Godaddy shared hosting for 2-3 years and it handled max 300 visitors during peak period. And it was less expensive, just 8$/m something like that. But my problem was it was so unreliable. At least 2 times (not exaggerated) of outages each month and its recovery was cumbersome.

As the Christmas is slowly approaching, i need to prepare for more traffic and i expect 500-600 simultaneous visitors during peak hours. Do you have any suggestion? Shall i upgrade it to better packages? Or shall i need to buy other server and mirror it? What can i do?

Thank you very much.
