If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information in a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more information it stores. As an example, if you start an online store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more goods. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they post, the larger the database. If your sites become more popular or you just want to add more content, this could become a problem if your website hosting account has limited database space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the website can perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site may be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the whole website may simply go offline.
