When a visitor opens your Internet site, the browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and provides the required content as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses very little resources due to the fact that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Every single page which is served generates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the time the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the total number of database queries produced by the script while the customer browses the website. Greater load shall be generated if loads of people look through a certain website concurrently or if a considerable amount of database calls are made all at once. Two illustrations are a discussion board with many 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 statistics about the load your website generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the website is simply getting quite popular.
