If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info in a database and the larger the website becomes, the more information it collects. For example, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more goods. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they post, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you just want to add more content, this could be a problem in case that your hosting account has limited database storage space. The particular effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the website could work properly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole website might go offline.
