There is no intelegent way for anyone to answer that question.

What kind of websites?
How large are the sites?
What framework do they use?
How popular are they?
How well are they optimised?
What configuration are you running on the VPS?
Does it have shared or dedicated resources?

All of these questions plan in.

That VPS would be enough to run quite a few static HTML sites, maybe a few small WordPress sites, but may not be enough to run 1 large/popular/or poorly optimised website.

Sorry, there just is no straight answer to that question.

As RDO said above, there are just too many variables that we don't know to be able to give an accurate number of sites.

I will tell you that sites that are based on something like WordPress can be resource hogs, so if you are using WP then take that into consideration.

If they are small sites that aren't very busy with traffic and run well then you can host a lot more.

they are blogs and business sites.

How large are the sites?
traffic is low, 100 visitors a day on each site

What framework do they use?
wordpress and any custom sites.

How well are they optimised?
What optimized techniques have you mentioned about?

Does it have shared or dedicated resources?
for shared resource.

Probably wothwhile mentioning what optimising techniques you have used.
Like Wordpress could have a caching plugin. While the custom websites could be using FCGI/Varnish and other such things.
Note: FCFGI, Varnish and such isn't exclusive to custom websites, Wordpress can still have Varnish.

really depends on how well the website is made and optimized. One badly optimized website can cost you the resources 5 well optimized sites would use. So giving you an estimate with something like this is a bit difficult. The server looks to be pretty powerful with RAM and processor cores, so you should be able to host a large amount of sites on there. Only way to really know is to test it out in the real world

From one to unlimited. Nobody will be able to tell how many websites you can host, it depends on websites coding quality, etc.

As mentioned by others, either you can host one website on the server (or even zero, depending on how big the individual website is and the resources it consumes) or you can host 10,000 HTML static websites on the server... There are many factors that you need to consider:

1. The provider being used, are they overselling their nodes?
2. The software configuration on the VPS (are you using a control panel? is the software optimized and configured right?)
3. What software is powering your websites? Wordpress? If so, is it optimized and configured correctly?
4. How much traffic does each website see?
5. Is the website mostly static content, or is it database intensive?
6. Did you optimize the MySQL configuration to the nodes specifications?

There really is no way to determine how many websites will fit on a specific server until you actually start to notice performance degradation. The benefit of a VPS is that you can upgrade/downgrade/resize the node at any given time, benefiting you in such a way that once you do start to see such performance degradation you can simply upgrade your package. Your best bet is to find a hosting provider that works with you to ensure that you have ease of access, also maybe check out a Managed VPS? If you don't have much experience in running a server and keeping things up to date then you may be in for some trouble, it's always good to have a helping hand kicking around to assist you when necessary. Sure, the cost is a little bit higher (depending on the provider) but it may be very beneficial on your part as this gives you room to learn as well.
