If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its information within a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more info it stores. For example, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script employs will increase any time you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they submit, the bigger the database. If your sites become popular or you would like to add more content, this could turn into a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database storage space. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the website can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your entire website could simply go offline.
