If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information within a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more data it gathers. As an illustration, if you start a web store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more products. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they publish, the larger the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you would like to include more content, this might develop into a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database storage area. What the exact effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the site may work properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the website can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire website might go offline.
