If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info within a database and the larger the site gets, the more information it stores. For example, if you launch an Internet based store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the more substantial the database. If your websites become popular or you would like to include more content, this may develop into a problem if your website hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the particular effect of geting to the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site can perform correctly, but you may not be able to add any new information; the website can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire internet site may simply go offline.
