If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data inside a database and the bigger the site gets, the more info it stores. As an illustration, if you start an electronic store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs will increase when you add more items. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your websites gain popularity or you just want to add more content, this can become a problem if your Internet hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the site can be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole site may simply go offline.
