If you use a script-driven platform for your website, it stores its data inside a database and the more substantial the Internet site becomes, the more info it gathers. For example, if you start a web store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users which register and the more responses they submit, the bigger the database. If your sites become more popular or you just want to include more content, this might turn into a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database storage area. What the particular effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the site can function correctly, but you may not be able to include any new information; the internet site may be viewed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the entire website may simply go offline.
