If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its info inside a database and the larger the site becomes, the more data it gathers. For instance, if you launch an Internet based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses will increase any time you add more goods. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more responses they submit, the more substantial the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you simply want to add more content, this might turn into a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the exact effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site could function properly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the website can be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole website might go offline.
