Whenever a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary data as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses minimum system resources due to the fact that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use more processing time. Each and every page that's served produces two sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the time period the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries produced by the script while the customer browses the Internet site. Higher load shall be generated if a considerable amount of people surf a particular Internet site simultaneously or if a lot of database calls are made concurrently. 2 examples are a discussion board with tens of thousands of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term inside a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed data about the load which your site generates will enable you to improve the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful type of website hosting service, if the website is simply getting extremely popular.
