If you use a script-driven platform for your site, it stores its data inside a database and the more substantial the website becomes, the more information it collects. For example, if you launch an online store, the size of the database the e-commerce script uses will increase when you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they post, the more substantial the database. If your sites become more popular or you would like to add more content, this could turn into a problem in case that your website hosting account has limited database space. The specific effect of reaching the limit shall be depends on the script - the Internet site may perform adequately, but you may not be able to include any new content; the internet site could be viewed with errors; or, in the worst case scenario, the whole site may simply go offline.
