If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information in a database and the larger the site becomes, the more data it collects. For instance, if you start an online store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more products. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they publish, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you simply want to add more content, this may develop into a problem if your web hosting account has limited database space. The specific effect of hitting the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site may perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new info; the internet site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole internet site might go offline.
