I am planning to move from Linode to DIgitalOcean. But I am worry about the limitation of CPU, RAM & Disk usage.

I have 4 project which have average traffic around 2k to 4k per month on all projects. and have side project just for demo and learning.

Here are my technology for projects
CMS: Drupal, WordPress,
Framework: CakePHP
Core PHP

So can you please tell me about the limitation of CPU usage. and what are the common reason that can suspend my account.

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.

You can find the details and pricing for all our plans here.
