If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its info within a database and the more substantial the site becomes, the more information it gathers. For example, if you start a web-based store, the size of the database which the e-commerce script uses will increase whenever you add more products. Exactly the same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more opinions they submit, the bigger the database. If your sites become popular or you just want to add more content, this may be a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of hitting the limit will be depends on the script - the website can work correctly, but you may not be able to include any new content; the internet site may be shown with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, your whole site might go offline.
