On our optimized droplet plans there are no limitations on CPU use. The RAM assigned to your droplet is also available to use completely. If you are on a non-optimized droplet plan we ask that you avoid running your CPU constantly at 100%. Most CPU related abuse issues that result in suspension are due to users mining cryptocurrency on non-optimized droplets. The workload required to host a site should not push your CPU this hard.
