When a visitor opens your site, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and gives the desired content as a response. A simple HTML site uses very little resources as it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Each and every webpage that's served produces 2 kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the length of time the server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries created by the script while the user browses the website. Larger load will be produced if a whole lot of people browse a particular website at the same time or if a lot of database calls are made all at once. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a visitor enters a term inside a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having thorough data about the load that your website generates will help you boost the content or see if it is the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the site is simply getting really popular.

If you host your sites inside a web hosting account with our company, you will have access to in depth CPU and MySQL statistics that will permit you to keep tabs on their overall performance. You can see the statistics with a few clicks within your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time frame the hosting server spent on your scripts and just how much memory was required, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the standard one, but you'll be able to also see the data from the past months. The MySQL Load section give you additional information about the number of queries to every database that you have created in the account. Once again, you can easily see monthly, daily and hourly stats, which will give you info which is different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. In this way, you can see if the sites require some optimization.
