If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information within a database and the bigger the site gets, the more information it gathers. As an example, if you launch a web-based store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase as you add more products. The same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the larger the database. If your websites become popular or you just want to add more content, this can be a problem if your website hosting account has limited database storage space. What the exact effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the site could perform properly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the website may be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire internet site might go offline.
