Contrary to a static html based website where all the available pages are already present, Wordpress generates the pages on the fly with the help of database queries. If you are on a shared hosting, where there are restrictions in CPU usage and system resources, it is very much required to make your Wordpress installation as optimized as possible. Failing this your site will be very very slow and increase server load considerably resulting in cancellation of your hosting account. Also a faster site will provide a better user experience and a lesser bounce rate. It has been noted that 40-60% of daily visitors to a site are first time visitors so they come with an empty cache.
