When a visitor opens your site, the Internet browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary data as a response. A standard HTML site uses minimal system resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Every single page that is served produces 2 forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries produced by the script while the customer browses the site. Larger load shall be generated if a considerable amount of people look through a given website at the same time or if numerous database calls are made at the same time. Two good examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed data about the load that your Internet site generates will enable you to boost the content or see if it is the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting really popular.
