ixwebhosting allows huge cpu usage?

I kicked last week a customer who started to host a web site that put my server down in just a few seconds. He has a large gamer community, and on his web site it said there were ~500 people online. Everyone connected at the same time refreshing the page querying PostgreSQL. The average load went crazy. In the matter of a few seconds, the server crashed. We repeated the trial several times. This happened for a few days and I decided to ask him to leave. My server is a Pentium D 3.2 + 2GB RAM. He went to ixwebhosting and since then his web site has been online and loading very fast, I'm amazed. Does ixwebhosting allow huge cpu usage? How is it possible? My server usually has a load average of 0.5. I host several other heavy-load web sites on this server, such as news web sites, business search engine, linux forums, and no problem.
