If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data in a database and the bigger the Internet site becomes, the more info it gathers. For instance, if you start an online store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs will increase as you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they publish, the larger the database. If your websites become popular or you would like to add more content, this could be a problem if your hosting account has limited database space. What the exact effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could perform properly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site may be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the entire internet site might go offline.
