When a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and supplies the required content as a response. A simple HTML site uses minimal system resources for the reason that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Every page that is served creates two kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the length of time the hosting server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the website. Greater load will be created if a whole lot of people browse a particular Internet site simultaneously or if loads of database calls are made simultaneously. 2 good examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term inside a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed data about the load that your Internet site generates will allow you to improve the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the website is simply getting extremely popular.
