If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a small amount of system resources as it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer far more features. This type of Internet sites produce load on the website hosting server each and every time someone browses them, simply because the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a specific name. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the site has to be optimized or moved to another kind of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the website is extremely popular.
