Every time a visitor opens your website, the browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary content as a response. A simple HTML website uses minimal system resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Each webpage that's served produces two sorts of load - CPU load, that depends on the amount of time the web server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the total number of database queries created by the script while the user browses the site. Greater load will be created if a whole lot of people look through a given website all at once or if a considerable amount of database calls are made concurrently. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term within a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having detailed stats about the load your Internet site generates will help you boost the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the website is simply getting really popular.
