If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its information inside a database and the larger the website gets, the more data it stores. As an illustration, if you launch an Internet store, the size of the database the e-commerce script employs will increase whenever you add more items. The exact same is valid for a forum script - the more users that register and the more opinions they submit, the larger the database. If your websites become more popular or you would like to include more content, this could become a problem in the event that your web hosting account has limited database space for storage. What the exact effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site could work adequately, but you may not be able to include any new information; the internet site could be shown with errors; or, in the worst scenario, the whole internet site may simply go offline.
