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 data as a response. A basic HTML site uses very little system resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use more processing time. Every single page that's served creates two sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the amount of time the server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries produced by the script while the end user browses the Internet site. Greater load shall be created if a considerable amount of people look through a certain site at the same time or if loads of database calls are made at the same time. 2 examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store in which a client enters a term within a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having detailed statistics about the load that your website generates will help you boost the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful sort of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting extremely popular.
