If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information inside a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more data it stores. For example, if you start an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they submit, the larger the database. If your websites become popular or you just want to include more content, this may turn into a problem in the event that your Internet hosting account has limited database storage space. The exact effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the site may be displayed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the entire site may simply go offline.
