Whenever a visitor opens your website, the browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and supplies the required information as a response. A simple HTML website uses minimum system resources for the reason that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use far more processing time. Every single webpage which is served creates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the time period the web server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries generated by the script while the end user browses the site. Greater load shall be created if a considerable amount of people surf a particular Internet site simultaneously or if a lot of database calls are made all at once. Two examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed statistics about the load that your Internet site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it is the perfect time to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting very popular.
