Each web hosting & VPS hosting is given "fair-share" usage on the server. In most cases CPU, disk & bandwidth will sit idle. Each VPS has access to several vCPU(depending on your plan) and can use the full processing power as and when required, since you sharing the CPUs with other clients on the node we have a fair share usage limit. If your VPS happens to cause issues to other clients on the node your VPS will be suspended and notified and asked to make changes to ensure it doesn't happen again. In addition, your server must not exceed the maximum load allowed which is determined by the amount of CPU Cores you have. If you have 4 vCores then the maximum load allowed at any given time would be 4.00.
