Whenever a visitor opens your site, the Internet browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and provides the required information as a response. A standard HTML Internet site uses negligible resources due to the fact that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Every page which is served generates two forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the customer browses the Internet site. Greater load shall be produced if a whole lot of people look through a certain Internet site simultaneously or if numerous database calls are made concurrently. Two good examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a visitor enters a term inside a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having thorough data about the load your website generates will allow you to optimize the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful sort of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting extremely popular.
