Each time a visitor opens your Internet site, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and provides the required content as a response. A simple HTML site uses very little system resources as it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use far more processing time. Every page which is served creates 2 types of load - CPU load, which depends on the span of time the server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the site. Higher load shall be produced if loads of people look through a certain website concurrently or if a considerable amount of database calls are made all at once. 2 examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term inside a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having comprehensive statistics about the load which your Internet site generates will allow you to optimize the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting really popular.
