When a visitor opens your site, the browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and provides the desired data as a response. A basic HTML website uses very little resources for the reason that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use more processing time. Every single webpage that is served creates two types of load - CPU load, that depends on the length of time the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the client browses the Internet site. Bigger load shall be produced if loads of people look through a certain Internet site at the same time or if numerous database calls are made all at once. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with many users or an online store in which a client enters a term inside a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having comprehensive statistics about the load which your website generates can help you optimize the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful sort of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting quite popular.
