When a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and gives the necessary content as a response. A basic HTML Internet site uses minimum resources for the reason that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each page which is served produces 2 kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries generated by the script while the client browses the Internet site. Bigger load will be produced if a considerable amount of people surf a certain Internet site at the same time or if numerous database calls are made all at once.

Having detailed stats about the load that your Internet site generates will enable you to improve the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful sort of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting extremely popular.
