If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information in a database and the larger the website becomes, the more data it stores. As an illustration, if you start a web store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more goods. The same applies for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the larger the database. If your Internet sites become popular or you simply want to add more content, this might turn into a problem if your hosting account has limited database space. What the specific effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the Internet site can function correctly, but you may not be able to add any new info; the site may be displayed with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, your entire internet site may simply go offline.
