If you use a script-driven platform for your Internet site, it stores its information in a database and the larger the website becomes, the more information it stores. For instance, if you launch an online store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they publish, the bigger the database. If your sites become popular or you simply want to add more content, this might be a problem if your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. The particular effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site could function properly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the internet site can be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your entire internet site could simply go offline.
