When a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and provides the necessary information as a response. A simple HTML website uses negligible resources due to the fact that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Each page which is served creates 2 forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the length of time the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the user browses the site. Bigger load shall be created if a lot of people surf a certain website all at once or if loads of database calls are made at the same time. 2 good examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store where a customer enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having thorough stats about the load which your site generates can help you improve the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the website is simply getting very popular.
