Noob question. Should I create separate droplets for each website?

What would be best? A single droplet with high specs containing 4-6 websites? Or 6 droplets (1 for each)?

No one mentioned, but putting all sites together is 10x increased risk to your business! In case 1 (from all 6 sites) is hacked, then all your other sites are hacked too!

I don’t know if there is a complete solution to separate domains from each-other COMPLETELY. It’s not enough to restrict only sFTP user. Instead, there should be access-jails (which will restrict APACHE PHP process) to have access to upper directory files in server. I am trying to find out if there is any way.

If you use 1 droplet for multiple websites, it means a single IP address is shared by multiple websites which are not good for SEO. Check this why a dedicated IP address is important for each site http://www.colocationamerica.com/services/why-a-dedicated-ip-address-is-important.htm
