You might first explain what that is then.

my website currently hosted on shared hosting with 2GB ram. and it has better GT metrix score than my dedicated server. so there is definitely some caching or setting i need required for good performance. but i don't know what it is.

good performance
It does not get more vague than this.
definitely some caching or setting i need
Conclusion based on what?

If you want to get better GT metrix scores, follow their guidelines.
It definitely is not your RAM as your server is pretty over-sized as it is and throwing more hardware to the mix is futile.

Performance is determined by
1) how fast the requester can get their request to your server
2) how fast you can generate your output
3) how fast you can get that output back to the requester and
4) how fast the requester's browser can generate the page from your output.

only 2 is influenced by your server hardware specs and with those specs I would say caching should be the last thing on your list.

i choose heavy server on purpose. i have currently around 20k-25k visitors per day on my website and at a time above 200 visitors be online. also i am planning to advertise heavily hence i required a capable system. the reason i choose heavy hardware.
