Whenever a visitor opens your site, the Internet browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and gives the necessary content as a response. A basic HTML website uses very little system resources due to the fact that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Every webpage which is served creates two kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the amount of time the server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the site. Greater load will be generated if a lot of people browse a given site simultaneously or if many database calls are made concurrently. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store where a client enters a term within a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having thorough data about the load that your site generates will enable you to improve the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful kind of hosting service, if the site is simply getting quite popular.
