Each time a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and gives the necessary content as a response. A simple HTML website uses very little resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Each webpage which is served generates two types of load - CPU load, that depends on the time the web server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the user browses the website. Larger load will be produced if loads of people surf a certain site concurrently or if a lot of database calls are made all at once. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store where a customer enters a term inside a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having in depth statistics about the load that your website generates can help you improve the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful sort of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting quite popular.
