Whenever a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary information as a response. A standard HTML site uses very little system resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each and every page which is served produces 2 kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the time period the hosting server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries generated by the script while the user browses the website. Bigger load shall be created if a considerable amount of people surf a given Internet site at the same time or if many database calls are made at the same time. Two illustrations are a discussion board with a large number 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 in depth stats about the load which your site generates will help you optimize the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful sort of hosting service, if the site is simply getting extremely popular.
