If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with considerably more features. This kind of Internet sites create load on the website hosting server when anyone browses them, due to the fact that the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the information requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular word. If a lot of people access the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide info about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats and see if the site should be optimized or moved to a different type of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is really popular.
