If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data in a database and the larger the Internet site gets, the more information it gathers. As an illustration, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script employs shall increase any time you add more products. The exact same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they post, the bigger the database. If your Internet sites gain popularity or you simply want to add more content, this can become a problem in case that your web hosting account has limited database space. What the exact effect of reaching the limit will be depends on the script - the website could work properly, but you may not be able to include any new info; the website could be displayed with errors; or, in the worst scenario, your whole website might go offline.
